Haiti - Social : Digicel wins the

Ethical Corporation awarded the "International Community Investment of the Year" Award to the Digicel Foundation, for its contribution to the development of Haiti, mainly for its involvement in the education system, with the construction of 172 schools and training nearly 2,000 teachers and school directors throughout the country.

More than 200 of the world's largest business entities, including Heineken, IBM and United Airlines, participated in this international ceremony, which recognizes and rewards leading sustainable and responsible companies around the world. Only 20 companies and organizations were awarded with prizes for their outstanding projects.



The judges sought to focus particularly on parameters that could demonstrate a truly innovative and forward-looking approach to the integration of socially responsible companies.



Commenting on the award, Sophia Stransky, Director of the Digicel Foundation said, "It is a great honor for Digicel to have been recognized for its work in Haiti through its Foundation. We are very pleased to have made a difference in Haitian communities for almost 10 years and we look forward to continuing to show our commitment in future years."

Recall that the Digicel Foundation had already been awarded in 2015, with the Prize of "Improvement of Education in Haiti" by Ethical Corporation for the construction of 150 schools in the country with an investment of more than 39 million dollars after the earthquake of January 12, 2010.
