MTN Foundation set to impact 200 communities as nomination ends

MTN Foundation (MTNF) has announced the closure of nominations for the #WhatCanWeDoTogether campaign, following thousands of entries received.

The next phase of the campaign will now commence and 200 deserving communities will be selected for positive impact.

According to a statement from the company, the scheme was launched as parts of efforts to reach out to more Nigerians, hence the nomination that was opened for three weeks ended on October 9, 2015 after a huge number of communities have been nominated by Nigerians who participated in the process.

Speaking on the level of participation in the nomination process, the Executive Secretary, MTN Foundation, Nonny Ugboma said, “We at MTNF are indeed pleased with the massive participation of Nigerians in nominating the community of their choice. Nigerians have partnered with the Foundation to ensure that this initiative is a success and we are glad with the responses we received.”

“The short listing process has begun and the top 200 communities with the highest nominations will be selected to benefit from 200 projects across 200 LGAs in the country. These projects will include the provision of school furniture, boreholes, transformers or household items for orphanages in such communities, she asserts.”

Ugboma said the initiative is a demonstration of the Foundation’s firm commitment to continue complimenting government’s efforts in ways that can improve project development in various communities across the country.

The #WhatCanWeDoTogether campaign is an initiative of MTN Foundation to impact 200 communities across the country and to celebrate the tenth year of the foundation in Nigeria.
