Mobile telco uplifts African education standards
JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE MTN Group has rounded up its tenth edition of the company’s annual employee volunteer programme, which supports education initiatives across MTN’s footprint.
The projects are done under the aegis of the 21 Days of Y’ello Care.
Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives were done in Benin, Botswana, Cameroon, Cyprus, Guinea Conakry, Guinea Bissau, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria and Zambia.
Executive for MTN Group Corporate Affairs, Chris Maroleng, commended staff for once again going the extra mile.
“When Y’ello Care started all those years ago, we could not have envisioned the kind of difference it would make in our communities,” said Maroleng.
“Now, ten years on, looking at the exceptional efforts being made by MTN staff – from the building of schools for communities in need, to the building of digital skills to better equip our future leaders – I am in awe.”
All MTN operations that participated in Y’ello Care 2016 stand in line to win monetary prizes, which are to be re-invested into corporate social or community upliftment programmes in their market.
These include the Group President and CEO prize of US$100 000 and Vice President prizes for each region of US$30 000.
Winners will be announced in October.
