(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – In furtherance of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives in Nigeria, the MTN Foundation, under its ‘What Can We Do Together’ (WCWDT) programme, has called on Nigerians to nominate areas that are in need of community projects.
According to Odunayo Sanya, the Acting Executive Secretary of the foundation, the project focused on signifying what could be achieved collaborating for the collective benefit of the community.
Speaking further, Sanya said that, “What Can We Do Together” project is a community based “give-back” initiative designed to get Nigerians to nominate selected projects for particular communities to be implemented by MTN foundation
“The strength of ‘What Can We Do Together’ comes from us working together toward the common good.
“The need to keep doing this has been heightened by the advent of COVID-19. We call on Nigerians to nominate communities that are in need of these projects.
“Previous editions of the WCWDT have enabled social interventions for 510 communities across 454 local government areas of the country.
Sanya disclosed that this year’s nominees were sought for solar-powered boreholes and ICT laboratories, coupled with specifically targeted interventions geared towards helping Nigerian communities cope with the negative impacts of the COVID-19, which would be executed in collaboration with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
The “What Can We Do Together” initiative started in September 2015 and has had three phases with various interventions rolled-out successfully in 510 communities under 454 LGAs in Nigeria. Interested individuals are to visit the website or send MTN to 321 before the closing date of 31 July, 2020.
