In keeping to its commitment of improving the quality of lives in communities, MTN Foundation has begun installation of several laudable projects in 200 verified locations across the country, under its ‘What Can We Do Together’ initiative phase 2.

The installation phase of the intervention comes after verification visits were paid to 1,085 communities that made the shortlist across the country. The foundation will provide 20 transformers, 20 boreholes, 80 school furniture and 80 primary health care centres across all six geo-political zones in the country.

Speaking on the ongoing installations, Executive Secretary, MTN Foundation, Nonny Ugboma, said the prompt commencement of work in the communities is a demonstration of the foundation’s commitment to improving the quality of life in our communities.

“MTN Foundation’s What Can We Do Together initiative is a unique project that aims at putting smiles on the faces of individuals. Now that we are in the installation stage, we assure you that the intervention will continue in the same seamless manner that the first phase was executed in,” she said.

“At MTN Foundation, we are pleased to sustain and improve on the huge success recorded in the first phase. It is heart-warming to see the eagerness with which Nigerians are willing to partner with MTN Foundation in its unrelenting commitment to complement government’s efforts in the development of infrastructure across various communities in the country,” she added.

In the Phase 1 of the What Can We Do Together initiative, 200 projects were successfully delivered in 200 communities across 200 Local Government Areas in the 36 states of the federation, including the federal capital territory (FCT). The project focused on four major areas; Transformer, bore-hole, school furniture and household item donations to select orphanages.
