On Tuesday, MTN Uganda donated computers and a WiFi router and a multi-purpose printer to the Nakawa Market vendors Association as it concluded its staff volunteerism campaign dubbed 21 Days of Y’ello Care, which also doubled as the MTN Y’ello Care Day across the MTN footprint.
Similarly, an MTN staff team in Mbarara also reached out to the Bunusya Abarema Twetungungure association in Mbarara on the same day, with a donation of goats, fencing materials, and farm inputs as well as a digital training session to support the group of farmers on their path to recovery following the disruptive Covid-19 pandemic, as part of the same campaign.
The annual campaign that is always executed within the first 21 days of June, was this year held under the theme: “Empowering Communities to Drive Economic Recovery” with a keen focus on digital skills training and digital job creation to spur economic recovery among disadvantaged communities that were adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The digital upskilling aspect of the campaign is hinged on MTN’s strategic priority to build digital skills for digital jobs in alignment to the company’s Ambition 2025 Strategy.
