Beausejour, St. George was the venue for the second installment of Youth Pulse, hosted by the Ministry of Youth, Sports, and Religious Affairs along with partners Digicel.
Persons arriving at the Beausejour playing field were greeted by the sound of pan music being performed by the Digicel Florida All-Stars.
There were several events for participants including football, cricket, volleyball, cards and domino tables, even games such as moral and hop-scotch and more.
Tents and stalls were set up for information as well including back to school specials on school supplies and handset and credit specials from Digicel.
Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Mitchell was present along with Minister for Youth, Sports and Religious affairs, Emmalin Pierre, both of whom addressed the youth and other patrons present with words of encouragement, and also commending individuals and sponsors on their contribution toward the event.
The Youth Pulse program continues with events in different villages/communities every month through 2015 and Digicel will be working hand in hand with the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Religious Affairs providing technical and logistical support as well as special offers for patrons who attend.
Digicel Marketing Executive, Aaron La Grenade addressed the audience saying, “We are grateful to the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Religious Affairs for once again allowing Digicel to be a part of such an Event”.
“This sort of initiative is directly in-keeping with Digicel’s philosophy to give back to the communities in which we operate, while also supporting the development of the youth and country…”, he added.
