They are informal pre-schools, set up by people with a passion to provide early education to children living in socially marginalised communities. The Foundation calls them Community Learning Centres, a place open to the young children to come and learn. Three of them, which come under Digicel Foundation’s Community Learning Centre Sustainability Program (CLCSP) recently received their Tier 1 reward of a Multi-Purpose Open Air Classroom. These CLCs are Glynn Centre and Rob & Jan Literacy Centre in Erima Settlement and Makana in 9 Mile Settlement. All three structures were officially opened with the communities in attendance. Since these CLCs operate outside of the formal education system, there are many things which need to be done to ensure they are managed well and end up becoming sustainable and continue providing the much needed service in their respective communities. Digicel Foundation’s Community Learning Centre Sustainability Program (CLCSP) is aimed at encouraging community ownership of CLCs. The main activity of the CLCSP is the Tier Reward Scheme which involves CLCs meeting 6 sets of criteria to receive 6 sets of rewards. The program is a gradual process of change with communities actively participating and taking responsibility and ownership at every step to work their way from Tier 1 through to Tier 6. Once the CLC has reached reward Tier 6, the CLC is able to continue to grow and support itself and its members without any further financial support from Digicel PNG Foundation.
