Samburu school to receive digital library
30 May 2014, 20:13
Nairobi - More than 2,000 learners and over 70 teachers are poised to benefit from the digitization of a library at a primary school in Samburu County.
The digitization of the Maralal Primary School is the brainchild of MTN Business.
Employee volunteers will oversee the supply of connectivity for a digital library they will create as part of their Y’ello Care activities.
Y’ello Care is part of the mobile network company’s annual Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
Commenting on the project in Samburu, Xolisa Vapi, General Manager for MTN Group Corporate Affairs, said digitization of learning and teaching was particularly close to the company’s giving back to the community.
“In fact, MTN Foundations are already doing a great deal of work with our commercial partners and communities in various countries. We are therefore excited that through Y’ello Care, employees have an opportunity to further contribute towards closing the digital divide in our communities, more so amongst learners and teachers in remote parts of the countries where MTN operates,” said Vapi.
Meanwhile, volunteers from across MTN’s global footprint will again cast the spotlight on the digitization of teaching and learning, when the company’s annual employee volunteer programme, 21 Days of Y’ello Care.
It kicks off on Sunday.
For the third consecutive year, MTN employees will unite under the theme of “Investing in Education for All”, as they embark on various educational projects for 21 days in June.
