Kumasi, June 3, GNA – MTN-Ghana, one of the leading communication companies, has opened another chapter in its education development support,  with the decision to build e-libraries for use by teachers and students.

           These are to be established in Accra, Kumasi and Takoradi,  and will be ready within 21 days.
           Added to this, will be the supply of school bags to pupils in deprived communities.
           Mr James Bukari Basintale, General Manger of the  Northern Business District, announced this at the launch of this year’s “Yellow Care Challenge, ” under the theme: “Investing in Education For All.”
           He spoke of another initiative – the introduction of a short code, where its customers would be invited to text “yello care” and  the proceeds used to buy laptop computers, tablets, modems and routers for distribution to teachers in selected schools.
 The “yellow care challenge” is a competition among MTN operations to promote volunteerism and projects that would make remarkable impact on the lives of the people.
Mr Basintale said education remained a top priority of the company,  because of its critical importance in the fight to bring down poverty, improve health and create opportunities.
 
           He encouraged the workers to do everything to ensure that this year’s event becomes a big success.
