MTN Ghana Foundation Marks 10th Anniversary with Big Xmas Parties

Students of Sekondi School for the Deaf

Accra, December 28, 2017//-MTN Ghana Foundation has organized Christmas parties for about 3000 children in select schools across the country.

The parties were held for children of Bethesda Basic School-Glefe/Mpoasei Dansoman;  Mampong School for the Deaf, Mampong; Sekondi School for the Deaf and Zuarungu community.

The Christmas parties formed part of activities marking MTN Ghana Foundation’s 10th Anniversary. As part of the activities, MTN Ghana Foundation also presented teaching and learning aids such as pens, pencils, crayons, erasers, sharpeners, rulers, story books, textbooks and A4 sheets to management of the schools.

The children were also taken through some fun activities that test both their cognitive and psychomotor abilities such as reading, drawing, dancing etc.

MTN Ghana Foundation took the opportunity to engage directly with the children while fulfilling two of its three focus areas, which are, Education and Health.

Commenting on the event, the Acting Corporate Services Executive of MTN Ghana, Mrs. Georgina Asare Fiagbenu said: “Christmas is a season of love, sharing and more importantly for giving back to the needy in society”.

The Foundation identifies with the reason for the season and we took advantage of the occasion to express love to the kids by sharing food and learning materials. Christmas means a lot of children and our staff volunteers were pleased to spend time with them, she stressed.

Over the years, MTN Ghana Foundation has  worked with other organisations to organise Christmas parties for children. On 26th December the MTN Ghana Foundation distributed hampers to mother of babies who are born on the 25th of December at selected hospitals across the country.
