Digicel Foundation continues to make an indelible mark in developing communities throughout Trinidad and Tobago. Our mandate encourages public private sector partnerships, enabling community-based organisations to implement sustainable social interventions.
Our small grants programme; EPIC – (Extraordinary Projects Impacting Communities), was launched in 2016, and to date has benefitted over 63,000 persons in Trinidad and Tobago. The US$14,000 grant initiative has been accessed by 129 communities for a series of indoor and outdoor projects.
Exposing our students to technology gives them a solid foundation to be recognised among the best ICT experts in the world. The Digital Citizenship programme prepared youth between 13 -18 years to exist in this fast-paced technology driven world.
Social Entrepreneurship programmes continue to be a major focus for the Digicel Foundation. To date the impact that we’ve made in Matura and Brasso Seco/Morne La Croix through community partnerships, are model examples of community sustainability at its best. The Digicel Foundation will continue to support social change interventions by empowering NGOs and CBOs to develop projects that are people oriented and community driven.
