Airtel Nigeria has kicked-off its 2018 Christmas programme tagged: ‘Airtel Five Days of Love’ to identify with and empower less privileged persons in communities where the telco operates.
Since the commencement of the initiative four years ago, Airtel has held different outreach programmes, especially its feeding programme, which over 10,000 Nigerians have benefited from.
According to Airtel, the ‘2018 Five Days of Love’ programme will be held in five states this week, these are, Ojuelegba Under Bridge, Lagos; Opposite Sultan Palace, Sokoto; Gyadi Primary School, Kano; Sango Tipper Garage, Ibadan and Isaac Boro Park, Port Harcourt to feed over five thousand Nigerians in all locations.
Speaking during the opening event at under Ojuelegba Bridge, Lagos, Managing Director, Airtel, Olusegun Ogunsanya, said the initiative is the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to feed the less privileged.
“Through the ‘Five Days of Love’ programme, we will be sharing the reason for the season –love– and celebrating with the underprivileged by providing quality, hot meals amidst an electrifying atmosphere of fun, good entertainment and love,” he added.
Ogunsanya stressed that Airtel is committed to touching the lives of the needy in the society and empowering stakeholders in the communities where it operates. For us, it is not about getting something in return. If you give and you get something in return, it is not giving. We want to give to people who cannot pay back.
“As a critical stakeholder in the Nigerian society, Airtel is passionate about uplifting the less privileged and providing support for the vulnerable as this aligns with our overall CSR theme of touching lives and improving the standard of living of the less privileged,” he added.Share this News
