MTN Nigeria, a leading ICT company, has unveiled the 17th edition of its renowned employee volunteer initiative, Y’ello Care. This year’s theme, “Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow,” aligns with the 30-day program, coinciding with MTN Group’s 30th anniversary, dedicated to addressing educational disparities in marginalized rural areas.

Tobe Okigbo, MTN Nigeria’s Chief Corporate Services & Sustainability Officer, emphasized the essence of Y’ello Care as an opportunity for MTNers to give back and make a meaningful impact by dedicating their time, finances, and efforts to support worthy causes. Specifically, the focus this year revolves around enhancing educational opportunities for young Nigerians in remote regions.

The flagship project involves the reconstruction of classrooms at Iwerekun Community High School in Lakowe, Lagos, aiming to accommodate 996 students. Additionally, MTNers will extend their support to KNOSK Charity Education Initiative (Study Better Packs) and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC)’s Safe School Initiative, coordinated by the National Safe School Response Coordination Centre.

MTN Nigeria’s commitment to education echoes Nelson Mandela’s words, recognizing education as a catalyst for societal change and empowerment. This dedication is especially pertinent in Africa, where educational disparities persist, hindering progress and development. In Nigeria, similar challenges are prevalent, particularly in rural areas, where access to quality education remains limited.

The 30-day initiative, launched on June 1, unites MTN employees in a collective effort to address these challenges and foster lasting improvements in educational access and quality. Through such initiatives, MTN Nigeria reaffirms its commitment to fostering sustainable growth and job creation within the communities it serves.
