Konbit Pou Chanjman: Announcement of the 25 finalists

Port-au-Prince, Haiti – January 31, 2020:

Launched in May 2019, the third round of the Konbit Pou Chanjman campaign has been true to its objective to contribute to strengthening communities across the country. The various steps have moved forward with success, from 399 applications submitted during the first phase to 63 selected projects visited during the visit phase.

At the end of 2019, the Foundation team traveled throughout the 10 departments of the country to meet with different communities to discuss projects and select 25 out of the 63 that had been chosen during the second phase of the campaign. Criteria considered during this process were pertinence of the project, its feasibility, its durability, and actual community needs.

And during the last week of January, representatives of these 25 organizations were invited to Port-au-Prince to defend their respective projects before a jury. They also participated in training on communication, leadership, management, and governance of non-profit organizations. Their defense of their projects will lead to the selection of 15 winners in this [final] phase, who will each receive a total of 800,000 gourdes to implement their community projects. Next March, these organizations will come to the capital again to participate in the closing ceremony of this third round and the announcement of winners.

“They received us with hearts full of joy during the field visits and now it is an honor for us in turn to welcome them. For several days we had the pleasure of noting their resolution and their belief in their projects, all of which have the common denominator of improving living conditions in their communities. I heartily congratulate the 25 organizations who reached this stage of the competition and wish them much success in the future,” declared Sophia Stransky, Executive Director of the Digicel Foundation.
