MTN Nigeria Communications Plc, through its social investment vehicle, MTN Foundation, has celebrated 110 Nigerians at gala events in Abuja, Port-Harcourt and Lagos. The celebration is the climax of the third edition of the “What Can We Do Together (WCWDT)” initiative. The celebrated heroes are the individuals who nominated various communities that received interventions.

Dedicated to developing grassroots communities through collaborative efforts, WCWDT provides Nigerians with the opportunity to nominate a community for developmental projects.

Commending the nominators, Senior Manager, Program Implementation, MTN Nigeria, Abasi-Ekong Udobang, said, “The What Can We Do Together initiative reflects our sustained drive to collaborate with Nigerians in executing impactful projects in communities across the country. We believe the nominators are the heroes of this initiative as their noble efforts will go a long way in improving the quality of life for millions of Nigerians.”

“The altruistic gesture from the nominators led to various interventions by MTN Foundation in nominated communities, including the supply of medical equipment to 40 primary health centres with training for the medical staff on the use of the newly supplied equipment. Ten communities received solar-powered boreholes and learning materials (school bags, exercise books, raincoats and pencil cases) were distributed to over 15,000 pupils in 60 public primary schools across 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory,” he added.

Speaking at the appreciation event in Abuja organised for nominators from the northern region, the Chairman, Senate Committee on ICT, Senator Yakubu Oseni applauded MTN for the kind gesture. He commended the initiative hoping that the Foundation would execute more ICT projects in subsequent phases.
