Welcome to MTN Nigeria 21 Days of Y'ello Care
From June 1 - 21, 2017, MTNers in 22 countries across Africa and the Middle East will take part in the 11th edition of a very worthy MTN tradition - 21 Days of Yello Care.
This is an annual volunteerism initiative which we take very seriously and have implemented for years with passion and pride. This year should not be any different.
If anything, I believe that the 2017 edition of 21 Days of Y’ello Care presents an opportunity to reiterate our long standing support and passion for Corporate Social Responsibility, especially in the area of education.
This commitment to education explains why we have retained the same theme for six years now. As we get set to join our colleagues across Africa and the Middle East in this annual event, the MTN Nigeria Y’ello Care Project Team, led by Funmilayo Willoughby has put together several projects focused on:
- Enabling access to education using ICT,
- Empowering students to use technology for optimizing learning as well as
- Equipping teachers with ICT-enabled tools/training to enhance their teaching skills.
More details on these projects and other activities will be communicated in due course by your respective divisional champion. In addition, please ensure that you visit www.yellocare.com to sign up to volunteer for projects/activities.
As we step out of our offices to train teachers, visit schools and even Internally Displaced Camps, etc, I urge you to give it your best shot and do all you can once again to contribute to making our society better.
Remember, if we deliver a successful campaign, we also stand to win the Group President/CEO award of $100,000 to be used for more CSR projects in Nigeria.
Let’s IGNITE and make this a 21 Days of Y’ello Care to remember!
