Students from the Southhaven Early Childhood Institution in Yallahs, St Thomas, were happy to be the first to benefit from the Digicel Foundation's 'Mek A Muckle' Initiative. They received funds to equip their resource and homework centre with resources, including a laptop, whiteboard and markers, folding tables, a wall fan, and a multimedia projector.

Application forms are currently available on the Foundation's website www.digiceljamaicafoundation.org, and in more than 13 dealer stores islandwide, including Digicel's flagship stores in Kingston and St Andrew.
