Digitisation of teaching and learning takes centre stage as MTN employees volunteer in local communities

Kigali – Volunteers from MTN Rwanda will again cast the spotlight on the digitisation of teaching and learning, when the company’s annual employee volunteer programme, 21 Days of Y’ello Care kicks off on 2 June.

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. This year’s Y’ello Care projects will focus on setting up Childhood Development facilities in schools, training teachers and learners in ICT and establishing digital content and libraries for Universities.

“Digitisation of learning and teaching is in line with MTN’s new vision ‘To lead in the delivery of a bold new digital world to our customers’ and further contribute towards closing the digital divide in our communities,” said MTN Rwanda CEO, Ebenezer Asante. “The objectives of our volunteer programme are to make a visible and sustained contribution to our society in which we operate and provide an opportunity for MTN staff to actively contribute to community development.”

MTN will provide infrastructure for Cloud Computing and Virtualisation training to universities as a way of empowering learning and digital content for Education. Professors and students will be able to access these virtual servers via remote connections.

21 Days of Y’ello Care was instituted by MTN Group in 2007 to give all MTN employees an opportunity to contribute towards improving the welfare of their communities. It has now become a prominent feature in MTN’s calendar, and is also one of MTN’s flagship Corporate Social Investment programmes.
