Telecommunications company Digicel Jamaica has awarded 20 scholarships valued at $1 million to its employees’ children.

The Digicel Scholarship Programme, now in its second year, is part of the company’s effort to help its employees with back-to-school expenses.

“Education is an important part of building Jamaica and helping our young people achieve their goals in life. With the Digicel Scholarship programme, we hope that we can contribute to the growth and development of the children whose parents are giving so much to the company. These children have a proven track record of excellence and we want to help them continue on that path to success,” said Andrea Hardware, director of human resources at Digicel.
