MTN Ghana has started its yearly staff volunteering programme that sees the telecom company carry out measures with the goal of youth empowerment.
Dubbed “21 Days of Y’ello Care” with the theme “Creating a Brighter Future for Our Youth”, the week-long programme begun on the 1st of June and is projected to conclude on the 21st of June.
The goal is to reach approximately 330 unemployed youth and comprises skills training activities on bead making, hair dressing, make-up application and construction.
Digital marketing, customer care services, financial management, Information Technology and entrepreneurship skills are also available as part of the skills training packages.
Inmates of the Senior Correctional Centres and Rehabilitation Centres will also be helped with this programme.
Mr Selorm Adadevoh, CEO of MTN Ghana, launched the programme and spoke on how corporations needed to empower the youth with skills required for employment.
He also noted that ‘21 Days of Y’ello Care’ serves as a challenge to the MTN Group and its employees with the goal of obtaining 95% of staff participation and a 100% Excom participation.
He therefore implored all staff of MTN to participate in the programme and make it as fulfilling and inspiring as possible for the citizenry.
