Basic Education

We believe that education is the single biggest opportunity you can give a child. Sixty per cent of our annual budget is invested in classroom projects. In our quest to improve education infrastructure to create an environment conducive to learning, Digicel Foundation has built to date 220 Primary School and 242 Elementary School classroom projects providing 13,640 children in rural, remote communities’ access to education. Each school education infrastructure project consists of two classrooms with desks, an office space in between, a water tank, two Ventilation Improved Piping (VIP) toilets and solar lighting. Primary Schools include two bucket showers. Thanks to our partnership with Atlas Steel, the Foundation is able to produce steel building materials at a good price. All education infrastructure are made from high-quality, low-maintenance, pre-fabricated steel and we are proud of our ability to deliver 90% of our projects on time and to budget.
