MTN Uganda has unveiled 30 days of Yello Care 2024 at Kansanga Seed Secondary School.

The Chief Executive of MTN Uganda, Ms Sylvia Mulinge, says the campaign will be carried out in five seed Schools across different parts of the country through provision of digital skilling tools and upgrade School infrastructure at a tune of Shs680 million.

Despite the increase in enrollment levels, Uganda still grapples with education inequality especially in rural areas despite the presence of multiple seed schools in the country.

Running until June 30, 2024, this year’s campaign prioritizes supporting marginalized groups severely impacted by economic factors, including youth, women, and differently-abled persons, ensuring inclusivity in its educational initiatives.

Ms Mulinge says the 30 days of Y'ello Care seeks to address persistent educational disparities faced by underserved regions within Uganda.

“By empowering communities through education, MTN is helping to cultivate future leaders who will drive socio-economic development in Uganda and beyond," she said.

"We are excited to see the positive changes that the 30 Days of Y'ello Care will bring, and we are committed to continuing our support for education as a cornerstone of a thriving society."

Mulinge underscored the need for different schools to embrace technology and IT subjects to catch up with the changing digital world.

The campaign culminated with the provision of 20 computers fully connected with one year of paid internet service to serve the institution’s 1,700 students to equip students with the digital skills needed in evolving workplaces.
