On June 20th, 2020, the Digicel Foundation was pleased to launch the 4th edition of its Konbit Pou Chanjman campaign (Come Together for Change). This initiative seeks to award 15 local organizations with 1,000,000 Gourdes each to implement a community project in one of the country’s 10 departments. Organizations desirous to implement a project were invited to apply for a grant in the following areas: education, culture, inclusion, access, livelihoods, and disaster prevention.
More than 300 applications were received and 64 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 13th, 2021, 25 organizations were selected to participate in regional finals held between March 1st and March 12th. At these events, not 15 but 17 organizations won a grant of 1,000,000 gourdes each to implement their projects.
