Launches Prayers in the Sky Initiative
“No, go, yell and tell”, those were the words of advice given to students at the Allman Town, Franklyn Town and North Street Primary Schools. In honour of Child’s Month, Digicel visited the three schools to deliver school supplies, refreshments and most importantly the solid words of advice.
“Say no to strangers, go far away from them, yell if you feel uncomfortable and be sure to tell someone about the incident,” Corporal Gillian Faulkner of the Jamaica Constabulary Force told the students.
In addition to the safety advice, Digicel brand ambassador, Yendi Phillips was also on hand to reinforce the message and also to motivate the students to achieve their dreams and aspirations.
The visits were also used to launch the company’s, Prayers in the Sky initiative. Students from the schools will write prayers which will then be printed on kites to be flown on the May 27 which is recognised as the National Day of Pray and Fasting.
Kamal Powell, Senior Sponsorship and Development Manager at Digicel said, “Digicel as well as the rest of the nation is deeply saddened about the recent upsurge in criminal acts against our children. Therefore, we wanted to ensure that they learn ways to maintain their safety both at home and while commuting. Corporal Faulkner delivered an easy message that they certainly will be able to practise.”
May is celebrated as Child’s month across the island; this year’s theme is ‘Children's Safety and Security - Our Priority’.
