On Friday, October 13th, Digicel and staff donated their time to improve the home of the Sunrise Adult Training Centre.
The exercise aimed at improving the centre’s appearance marked 18 months since the communications group and staff committed their resources to support the centre which assists people with special needs preparing them for employment by teaching them different skills. During those 18 months the Lighthouse School for children with special needs as has also been a beneficiary.
The special needs element of the company’s corporate responsibility (CSR) program was thought up by employee's Brian Walsh and Ross Kelly, who thought it was needed to adequately support the often marginalized special needs groups. The CSR program aids the institutions by dedicating needed funds as well as volunteer time.
The corporate representatives had high praises for the training centre’s director Kimberly Voaden, remarking that her dedication and perseverance is remarkable.
Digicel's CSR program is aimed at encouraging a culture of giving back among employees. Their staff is reported to be widely accepting of the challenge to fulfil their civic duties by donating their time when possible to the various social enrichment causes.
