Airtel empowers physically challenged



Airtel Ghana, leader in Corporate Social Responsibility has supported fifteen (15) physically challenged individuals in the Nkoranza Disabled Society in the Nkoranza South Municipality.

They were given Airtel products to trade in as Airtel retailers through the company’s employee driven initiative dubbed “Make Your Change.”

The beneficiaries were nominated by an employee of Airtel who recommended them to be supported due to their resolve to engage in productive ventures that will make their lives and those of their dependants better.

The beneficiaries were supplied with point of sale materials and souvenirs including parasols, tables, showcase, rechargeable cards and e-value for Airtel money transactions to empower and make them self-dependent.

In attendance at the short ceremony to present the items to the beneficiaries in Nkoranza were Miss Shirley Adjeley Sowah, Representative of the Municipal Chief Executive –Nkoranza South, Mr. Mintah Sufan- Chairman for the Nkoranza Disable Society and Mr. Douglas Musah – District Director of Social Welfare.

Kwaku Asiedu, Zonal Business Manager, Ashanti and Brong-Ahafo said “we are moved by the eagerness shown by the beneficiaries to make a meaningful impact in their own lives. This is actually the power of potential which Airtel as a company believes that everyone has the power of potential to be the best they can be. We are committed to supporting initiatives such as this, championed by our employees, to make a difference in our local communities.”

Airtel Ghana has over the years contributed significantly to the lives of individuals and communities through its sustainable corporate social responsibility initiative – Make Your Change. This initiative welcomes and supports worthy causes identified by employees in their communities.
