Stronger Communities

The Digicel Foundation collaborates with local organizations and communities to support and finance sustainable development initiatives.

In Haiti, there is an adage which goes “men anpil chay pa lou" – it means that where there are many hands, the burden is little. With this meaningful proverb in mind, Digicel Foundation recognizes how vital it is to work in concert with local communities to accompany community members towards a better life.

Upon opening its doors in 2007, the Foundation embarked on a mission to assist in the development of these communities. Not long after, both Digicel and the Digicel Foundation began serving thousands of families who lost everything in the floods of Gonaives. From there, the Digicel Foundation began making substantial impressions across Haiti.

Over the last 17 years, more than one million people have been touched by the Foundation’s social investments in diverse projects impacting various sectors including: education and capacity building, special needs, human rights, the environment, water accessibility, sanitation, agriculture, and technology. Because of our partners’ remarkable efforts, adults have learned how to read, Special Olympic athletes earned many medals center stage at the World Games, hundreds of lives were spared from cholera, and thousands of youth gained access to development programs.

The Digicel Foundation Grants Program has already invested in more than 350 projects. With its longstanding partners, and new partners it meets along the way, the Foundation hopes to deliver many more life-changing projects, while bringing countless hands together to lessen life’s burden for the most vulnerable populations.

On May 8th, 2024, the Digicel Foundation was pleased to launch the 8th edition of its Konbit Pou Chanjman campaign (Come Together for Change). This initiative seeks to award 15 local organizations with US$10,000 each to implement a community project in one of the country’s 10 departments. Organizations desirous to implement a project are invited to apply for a grant in the following areas: education, culture, inclusion, access, livelihoods, and disaster prevention.

Interested organizations should click on this LINK to complete the Konbit Pou Chanjman Application and are encouraged to review the Konbit Pou Chanjman FAQ  for more guidance.  The application deadline is July 19th, 2024.
