In April 2015, Tigo Ghana took a bold decision to support education in Ghana in an impactful and meaningful way.
As passionate believers in education as the key to successful development in Ghana, the telecom company embarked on its flagship corporate social responsibility program dubbed ‘Shelter 4 Education’, which provided infrastructure and technology support to basic schools in rural Ghana.
The project has touched the hearts and minds of many stakeholders, from teachers to government officials, and community chiefs among others.
Here are what some of them had to say:
“A project well-conceived well planned and well executed .Tigo we give you thanks and ask for more of such projects.” – RAYMOND L. GLOVER, DEP. DIRECTOR OF FINANCE AND ADMIN, GA SOUTH.
