DIGICEL SUPPORTS EDUCATION IN FLORIDA’S HAITIAN COMMUNITIES
As part of its ongoing commitment to support Haitian Diaspora communities of Florida, Digicel today announced its support of a back-to-school fundraising event, scheduled to take place this Saturday August 18th 2012 in North Miami Beach, Florida.
The Digicel-sponsored back-to-school event is part of a program launched by the “Actions for Better Futures Inc.”, a non-profit organisation, whose aim is to improve the quality of life of young people living in the Haitian Diaspora and other minority communities in South Florida through social outreach programmes and initiatives. Digicel is donating backpacks and other school supplies to the 500 students attending the event – providing much-needed support to these young people and their families.
Digicel is keeping its customers connected to their friends and families with innovative and convenient top-up methods that allow them to send minutes to their loved ones living abroad. Digicel also supports its Diaspora Communities by participating in events, such as this back-to-school fundraiser – which seeks to help the Haitian Diaspora’s young people who desperately need school schools supplies so that they can start the new school year on the right foot.
Digicel Diaspora General Manager, Valerie Estime, said; “Digicel is committed to keeping its customers connected to their culture. With these school supplies, young people from the Haitian Diaspora Communities in South Florida are getting the best start possible. We believe education is the vehicle which drives development and progress.”
