25 SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS BENEFIT FROM MTN’S Y’ELLO CARE

The 2024 MTN Y’ello Care initiative is becoming even more exciting. MTN Ghana employees, alongside their partners, are offering digital literacy lessons to selected senior high schools across the country.

The students are learning about artificial intelligence and robotics and how these technologies can be applied in their studies and daily lives. They are also being introduced to the Ghana Knowledge and Skills Cloud-Based Platform (GKSB), which serves as a repository of educational resources and training materials for teachers and students. The platform provides students with reading materials, including past questions. The technology programs are being handled in collaboration with Coral Reef Innovation Hub, Npontuo, Duapa Workspace, Eastern Hub, and Nude 8.

In total, 25 senior high schools will benefit from this Y’ello Care initiative across the country. The schools include Aburi Presbyterian Secondary Technical School, Eastern region, Church of Christ SHS, Ashanti region, Konadu Yiadom Catholic SHS, Ashanti region, Sunyani SHS, Bono region, Bechem SHS, Ahafo region,  Ahafoman SHS, Ahafo region, St Francis SHS, Bono East region, Kintampo SHS, Bono East region, Kalpohini SHS, Northern region,  Diabene SHS Western region, Sefwi Wiawso SHS, Western North region, Academy of Christ the King, Central region, St. Paul’s Technical School and Akyem Asafo SHS in the Eastern region among others.

Commenting on digital training, Adwoa Wiafe, the Chief Corporate Services and Sustainability Officer, said, “through these initiatives, we are supporting efforts being made to make educational material more accessible to students.  Our objective is to bridge the digital gap and help improve educational outcomes by leveraging technology for teaching and learning”.

This year’s Y’ello Care theme is “Education for Rural and Remote Communities – Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow.” MTN Ghana employee volunteers are working on projects to narrow the educational gap in underserved and unserved communities across the country.

MTN Y’ello Care is an annual employee volunteerism program across the MTN Group, allowing staff to participate in community development projects in countries where MTN operates. The initiative, which was started in 2007, has had a significant impact on millions of people and hundreds of communities across the continent.

The 21 Days of Y’ello Care programme takes place in June every year. However, this year, to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of MTN’s operations, the 21 Days of Y’ello Care has been extended to 30 Days.
