POSITIVE SPIN: “The Face of Change initiative will motivate and inspire those community groups that have been actively delivering critical service to the needy and most vulnerable across the island,” explains Digicel Foundation chair Jean Lowrie-Chin, referring to their latest community empowerment and outreach initiative that has been endorsed by Governor General Sir Patrick Allen’s I Believe programme. “Face of Change will encourage and reward the spirit of voluntarism and human compassion. For the majority of these organizations, funding is not easily available, yet they remain resilient in their efforts and steadfast in their determination to make a difference in their communities.” To learn more about Face of Change and to get involved with the cause, visit faceofchange.causewrx.com.
