Staff Volunteers of MTN Ghana who have been delivering services in the annual staff volunteering programme, known as 21 Days of Y’ello Care have officially handed over a Twenty (20) Bed Capacity Dormitory facility to the Women Action Group (WAG) Training Center in Pantang.

The MTN 21 Days of Y’ello Care is an annual staff volunteering program that runs across MTN Groups from 1st to 21st June.

It was officially launched 12 years ago and has grown to become one of the key and exciting activities on the MTN calendar

The Y’ello care gives MTN staff an opportunity to volunteer their service by working in the communities to make lives better through the projects.

This year, however, the Volunteers have lined up three projects all aimed at educating and empowering 1,000 youths in various communities and one of such projects is the building of the dormitory block for WAG Vocational Training Centre, which has now been completed and handed over to the Center.

Mr. Samuel Koranteng is the Corporate Services Executive for MTN Ghana thanked MTN Volunteers for taking such bold steps in bringing smiles onto the faces of others and also contributing to their lives.

He said MTN Staff have undoubtedly given off their energies, time and commitment to delivering services that will help improve the lives of people; an action he said was commendable.

He explained that the company, MTN Ghana, is happy to have seen that the project is delivered in time and urged the training supervisors as well as the students to take good care of the facility.

Samuel Koranteng said the dormitory will boost the training of the students in the areas of bead making, hair-dressing, make-up arts and construction works.

He said the students as well as beneficiaries of this year’s Y’ello Care would also be trained on digital marketing, customer care services, financial management, Information Technology and Entrepreneurship skills.

The Founder of the Center, Mrs Felicia Adade in her address expressed gratitude to MTN and the Staff Volunteers for coming to their aid.

She said the provision of the facility will help in housing students who travel from far distances to the facility.

Felicia Adade also explained that due to the stress and financial constraints faced by some of these students especially in acquiring means of transportation to and from the Center, majority of them are forced to sleep in the classrooms.

She indicated that sleeping in the classrooms will now be a thing of the past.

She also mentioned that the acquisition of the new dormitory block will also allow the center to admit more students for the training.

The 2019 Y’ello Care programme on the theme, “Creating a Brighter Future for Our Youth” commenced on June 1 and it was expected to benefit about 330 unemployed youth.
