Digicel wins award for building schools in Haiti – Royal Gazette

Digicel Group has won the Social Contribution Award at the 2022 World Communication Awards in London.
The award celebrates the service provider demonstrating the greatest positive impact on the market it seeks to address.
Digicel’s award submission showcased the extensive work that the Digicel Haiti Foundation has done in the field of education throughout the nation, building 188 schools, resulting in more than 100,000 Haitian children accessing education in a Digicel-built school each day.
Started in 2007 under the patronage of Digicel founder and chairman Denis O’Brien, the foundation in Haiti strives to ensure that communities have a better future by supporting community-based activities, with a particular emphasis on those improving access to and quality of early childhood and primary school education.
Oliver Coughlan, Digicel Group CEO, said: “The work we do in Haiti is very near and dear to all our hearts. It’s a country populated by people full of potential, but plagued by numerous challenges.
“Winning this award is testament to the phenomenal work done by the Digicel Haiti Foundation team to empower the children of Haiti to reach their full potential by educating the nation so no one gets left behind.”
