MTN 21 Days of Y’ello Care kicks off on Friday 17th June 2022 after a two-year break due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
MTN Y’ello care is an annual employee volunteering project held in all MTN operations. Since its inception in 2007, the initiative has impacted millions of people and communities across the continent.
Over the years, MTN Ghana has undertaken several initiatives under the 21 Days of Y’ello Care project. In 2017, MTN staff volunteers refurbished the Street Academy building in Accra providing a study area, computers and books for children.
In 2019, it trained over 1,000 youth across the country in bead making, leather works and computer programming and refurbished a dilapidated hostel facility for trainees at the WAG Service Centre at Pantang.
Other activities undertaken by staff in previous years include painting of school buildings, cleaning of beaches, donation of items to orphanages and visit to prisons.
The staff volunteers have also in the past undertaken blood donation and tree planting exercises.
The 2022 edition is therefore anticipated due to the two year break.
