MTN Rwanda has announced the launch of its “We’re Good Together” initiative, derived from the MTN Global Campaign launched earlier in October in South Africa. It aims to demonstrate that MTN has changed lives by improving digital access, driving financial inclusion, empowering and enabling SMEs, and creating jobs and broad community development.
Speaking about MTN’s role in Rwanda, MTN Rwanda CEO, Mitwa Ng’ambi said, “MTN believes in creating shared value that enables shared prosperity, but we can’t do this on our own – we continue to seek out like-minded partners so that we can do good together. We see ourselves as a partner to the development of Rwanda, so whatever it is we do, we ensure it has a long-lasting impact in our society.”
MTN seeks to tell relate that doing good business extends far beyond corporate social investment initiatives. Over the last 21 years, MTN Rwanda has built high-speed networks covering 3.8 million people, created jobs for over 31,000 people and through MTN Mobile Money, connected 2.5 million people to the benefits of easy, cost-effective mobile financial services across the country. MTN Rwanda has also enabled access to education through its ICT-School Connect Projects with the goal of promoting and enabling digital teaching and learning.
