Digicel Foundation recently opened a centre of excellence in Orange Bay, Portland, the Betancourt Building, in memory of a former employee Mickhail Betancourt. It will cater to special-needs children from several communities in the parish, and will act as a facility where child development officers will be able to conduct early childhood stimulation programmes.

Jean Lowrie-Chin, chairman of Digicel Foundation, said, "We are inspired by teachers and students of the Early Stimulation Programme who have endeavoured to reach their highest potential. This foundation is committed and continues to address the special needs of the varied communities."
