In fulfilling its commitment to improve the quality of lives in communities, MTN Foundation, the social investment vehicle of MTN Nigeria, has launched the third phase of the “What Can We Do Together” project, an initiative geared towards developing grassroots communities through collaborative effort.
Reaching over 10 million Nigerians, the first two phases of the campaign, have seen 400 communities in 347 local government areas benefiting from the initiative with 40 communities receiving 500KVA transformers; and another 40 communities receiving 650ft boreholes. The first two phases also saw the supply of medical equipment to 80 primary healthcare centres; provision of school furniture sets to 174 schools, and household supplies and equipment to 66 orphanages in different communities in Nigeria.
The third phase of the campaign is set to begin, and as usual, the foundation plans to enlist the support of Nigerians in order to meet the objective of the initiative. To nominate a community, nominators are required to text ‘MTN Foundation’ to the short code 321, and respond to subsequent questions with ‘MTNF (space) answer.’ Nominators can also fill an online form.
The What Can We Do Together initiative was first launched in 2015 during the MTN Foundation’s 10th-year anniversary. Speaking on the flag-off of the third phase, the executive secretary, MTN Foundation, Nonny Ugboma said, “At MTN Foundation, we are committed to improving the quality of lives in our communities. It is a mandate we are working steadfastly on and we believe that Nigerians deserve the best. Working with them to achieve this common goal will help make lives easier, better and brighter.”
