Digicel Grenada donates water to Bishop’s College

Digicel Grenada donates water to Bishop’s College

Digicel has donated 10 cases of spring water to Bishop’s College in Carriacou  as “the first step toward improving the learning experience of the Bishop’s College students”.

According to Digicel, for fifty-three years Bishop’s College has been offering secondary level education to children on the island of Carriacou.

Prior to its opening, families were forced to send their children to the mainland of Grenada to be educated. This proved to be a challenge for some families who were not able to financially support their children and created a disadvantage for the persons who were not able to afford it. Bishop’s College was the answer to that problem and therefore a blessing to the people of Carriacou. 

Unfortunately the high school has fallen into disrepair, with a dwindling student population and lack of financial support, many of its basic needs have gone unmet. The school currently hosts some of its classes outside under the shelter of large trees with one of the buildings being abandoned because it was no longer structurally sound. Despite all these challenges the students still maintain positive, moral and excel in their academics continually.

The immediate challenge is however affecting the students’ access to running water, as there is no clean drinking water on the compound. “We at Digicel Grenada believe that access to clean, drinking water is a basic human right that we cannot afford to overlook.
