Get to Know the Digicel Foundation
In 2004, the Digicel Foundation was founded on the simple premise that wherever Digicel grows, their communities must grow with them; and this principle continues to fuel their ethos of giving back to the communities across the region.
The Digicel Foundation remains a vested partner in the social development of the communities and they are doing this by increasing access for our Special Needs community to improve their quality of lives, by expanding access to education through technology, by supporting and empowering survivors of domestic violence, providing health interventions and finally, by fostering a spirit of self-reliance through sustainable enterprise within communities.
A renowned entrepreneur once said that, “a sustainable world means working together to create prosperity for all.” In this regard, Denis O’Brien,the Foundation’s founder recognise that the Foundation would not be as vibrant and strong as it is today without the support of their partners who are helping us to make a difference.
