The Digicel Foundation begins the final phase of its  "Konbit pou Chanjman" campaign

 

 

 

Monday January 15, 2018 - Port-au-Prince, Haiti: In March 2017, the Digicel Foundation celebrated its tenth anniversary and used the occasion to launch “Konbit Pou Chanjman” (Come Together for Change), a campaign to reinforce its commitment to promote sustainable community development throughout the country. The goal of this initiative is to support ten (10) organizations in the amount of $10,000 US dollars, each to implement a community project in all 10 departments of the country. Organizations that seek to develop projects in their communities were invited to submit a grant application in the following areas: education, access, culture, inclusion, livelyhood, and natural disaster prevention.

In June 2017, out of 300 applications received, 63 were chosen to advance to phase two. By the end of 2017, members of the Foundation’s Board of Directors, with the support of company employees, visited the project sites, which are located across all ten departments of the country, to evaluate the impact of these projects on their communities.

Now in the last phase, 22 projects have been selected for the grand finale that will take place in March 2018. A jury will select 10 organizations to benefit from the 10,000 US dollars.

“We are delighted with all these projects, which have been submitted by the candidate organizations with so much care and determination. This shows the will of the Haitian people to contribute to the development of their country. We congratulate the finalists and wish great success to everyone.  We can't wait to accompany the 10 organizations in the implementation and realization of their projects,” stated Mrs. Sophia Stransky, Non-Executive Direction of the Digicel Foundation.
