Digicel+, through its back to school initiative, assisted
six families with getting ready for the upcoming school term.
Working with the Welfare Division under the Ministry of Health, Wellness and Social Services and
Wesley High School, Digicel+ was able to offer support to families from the communities of
Portsmouth, Castle Bruce, Fond Cole, Pichelin, Canefield and Belles.
Sixteen children, representing the total number of children among the six families, received
complimentary backpacks filled with stationery, and each family received a $500 grocery voucher,
cosponsored by J. Astaphan & Company Limited.
Digicel+ has also committed to further assisting two deserving students from Belles as part of its
back to school activities. These students, who currently attend Wesley High School, will benefit from
Digicel+ sponsoring their tuition and snacks for the 2023/2024 academic year. They also each
received complimentary handsets and will have access to six months home internet at no cost.
Victor Kovacs, Chief Executive Officer said, “One thing that impresses me most about Dominica is
the commitment to education. Parents go the extra mile to ensure that their children receive the
best education possible, and Digicel wants to honour that by supporting deserving families wherever
we can. The children of these six families will go on to do incredible things and Digicel+ is elated to
give back to the people of Dominica.”
