According to MTN CEO Ebenezer Asante, the programme is in line with MTN’s new vision to lead in delivery of a bold new digital world to our customers. The move is also in a quest to close the digital divide in the community.
This is also part of the company’s annual employee volunteer programme dubbed 21 Days of Yello care.
