Haiti - Education : DIGICEL, winner of Corporate Citizens of the Americas
Thursday, Digicel was named a winner at the 2012/13 Corporate Citizens of the Americas (CCA) Award last night at a glittering gala in Washington DC. Digicel was named the winner in the "Vulnerable Communities" category for its Digicel Foundation education programme in Haiti which sees it on track to build 150 schools by 2014 and deliver training to over 600 teachers who each receive more than 450 hours of training, mentorship and professional development.

Commenting on the Digicel Foundation’s work in Haiti, Digicel chairman and founder, Denis O’Brien, declared "We are deeply committed to helping the people of Haiti to build a brighter future for themselves. Our education programme in Haiti sees between 80,000 and 90,000 children being given the opportunity to receive a much-needed education and teachers receiving proper training and support. We would like to thank the Trust of the Americas and its partner organisations for this kind recognition of our efforts."
