Digicel Guyana which has been the sole sponsor of the Indigenous Heritage month Day of Sports for the past seven years, maintained its support for the event when Communications Manager Vidya Bijlall-Sanichara handed over sponsorship cheque to Project Coordinator, Bisham Ramsaywack on Wednesday, at the Company’s Head Office in Kingston.
Ramsaywack, who accepted the cheque on behalf of the Minister within the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples Affairs Valerie Garrido-Lowe, expressed appreciation to the company for its sustained support of the activities, adding that “this year we are expected to have about 500 athletes from Regions 1 to 10. Last year’s defending champion for football is Region 9 and they are expected to be there to defend their title.”
In her brief remarks, Bijlall-Sanichara said “It’s always a privilege for us to be on board with the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples Affairs, as you know Digicel is the leading telecommunication provider in the hinterland regions and we pride ourselves on being the first to take telecommunications to some of the most remote hinterland villages of Guyana.”
Bijlall-Sanichara also noted that as part of their corporate social responsibility, Digicel always strives to partner with agencies, in this case the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples Affairs to make a difference in the lives of Guyanese. The dates for the sporting activities are set from Sept 18 to Sept 20, at the Everest Ground, Georgetown which will see thousands of hinterland residents converge in Georgetown to participate in the activities.
In addition to football, cricket, volleyball, archery and other games, swimming has been added to this year’s calendar of events. This is scheduled to take place at the National Aquatic Center on September 20.
