Two communities in Labasa received cash grants from Digicel Fiji under ‘All In for Fiji initiative’.

Digicel Fiji head of home and entertainment Ravneet Prabhu pre­sented $2,400 to Tabia Community and $3,565 to Solove Wailevu Crime Prevention Committee at their Labasa office last Friday.

Digicel Fiji in September launched the All In for Fiji initiative which offers a total of $50,000 for various community projects in the country.

All in for Fiji $50,000 cash grants for community projects is to mark the nation’s 50th Independence celebrations this year.

“We want our people to make a difference in their communities and we are supporting them to start their own development projects,” Mr Prabhu said.

“We know there are many ideas to see communities uplift.”

The company had already awarded four grants and yesterday they hand­ed to two more.

Solove Wailevu Crime Prevention Committee, Abdul Samad said with the grant they would buy 50 roofing iron sheets and 15 galvanized pipes for their income-generating project.

“We also received the grant to have two neighbourhood watch signage boards erected in our community to promote a crime-free neighbourhood watch attitude,” Mr Samad said.

“We are very thankful to Digicel for helping us in our two projects.”

Meanwhile, Tabia community member Prinita Kumar said they would use the grant to assist three schools (Tabia Sanatan College, Bulavou Dis­trict School and Tabia Primary School) in Tabia community.

“These schools access one bus shelter for students,” Ms Kumar said.

“We will help more than one hundred students by having another bus

shelter erected at a focal point that would provide shelter from the

rain and sun.”
