The Digicel Foundation proceeded with the inauguration of 8 schools during the month of February. 5 of the schools were built in partnership with the organization Zanmi Lassante (Partners in Health) in the Center department and 1 was built in collaboration with the Ministry of Education in the Nippes. The Digicel Foundation is very happy to be getting closer to achieving its objective of constructing 150 schools by September 2014 and would also like to thank the above mentioned partners for their collaboration along the way.

2 of the schools have 6 classrooms and each of the schools can accommodate up to 270 students. The 6 other constructed schools have 9 classrooms and can up to 405 pupils. The local beneficiaries were delighted with the new constructions because for the most part the schools were functioning in very precarious conditions under tents or inside wooden huts.

The students present at the inaugurations demonstrated an immense pride in their new securely built classrooms which meet current standards.
