In March 2017, the Digicel Foundation in celebrating 10 years of successfully driving social change throughout Haiti, was pleased to present its newest undertaking to promote more sustainable communities Konbit Pou Chanjman (Come Together for Change) campaign. The initiative sought to award 10 organizations with $10,000 dollars each to implement a proposed community project in one of the country’s 10 departments.
More than 300 applications were received and 62 organizations were selected to advance to round two. Field visits were made across the country to meet the organizations and further evaluate the projects submitted. On January 15th, 2018, 22 organizations were selected to participate in the grand finale which took place on March 21st, 2018. At this event, not 10 but, 11 organizations won a grant of $10,000 each to implement their projects.
A new Konbit Pou Chanjman campaign is coming soon, and will be launching in May 2018.
