The donation forms part of Airtel Ghana’s internal CSR staff driven campaign called Make a Difference Day. The initiative encourages its employees to get involved in their local communities by identifying and supporting sustainable projects within their communities or lending a hand towards a charity project which they are passionate about. Make a Difference Day, (MADD) offers a platform for staff to engage in sustainable CSR in the communities where they live while inspiring hope and enhancing people’s quality of life.
The Village of Hope cares for 260 children (Orphans and destitutes), with 34 in SHS and 22 in Tertiary institutions. The remaining are in JHS and Primary or waiting to enter Tertiary Institutions. The system is based on family communal setting with a mother and father in each home. Guided by the belief that all children should have an equal opportunity to thrive, the Orphanage works to create conditions for vulnerable children so they can realize their full potential in school, work and life.
