in education. It is so important to inspire and support our children and our schools in pursuit of excellence, and Digicel gets it.”

Digicel also is cognizant of the vulnerability of youth and the challenges they face and we applaud organizations like Grow Well who continue to ensure that they contribute to alleviating the problems.”
