Kuramo College is a public secondary school in Lagos. As part of Airtel Nigeria’s Employee Volunteer Scheme Initiative, employees visited the school and donated contemporary routers, each of which had 100GB of data and a two-month roll-over access cost.
The Airtel Information and Technology team donated the connecting tools with the goal of empowering children through improved digital connectivity.
Seun Solanke, director of information and technology, stated during the occasion that Airtel seeks to empower young minds by providing them with the connectivity to imagine and open up a world of opportunity and knowledge.
“For Airtel, it is no longer about being a smartphone network but giving people a reason to imagine, so that people can explore the possibilities powered by technology and connectivity. The world is evolving, young Nigerians now have access to unlimited possibilities and can now create their own job titles and descriptions, which is why we now have YouTubers, social media Influencers, and the likes.”
He concluded by encouraging the students to maximize the provision of connectivity to back up their future imaginations with the right information and resources, in other to ensure a bright future.
The activities under the Airtel Nigeria Employee Volunteer Scheme, said Airtel management, aligns with the company’s commitment to bridging the digital divide in the country and enabling students to leverage the power of the internet, as the distribution of routers with data plans will ensure that students have uninterrupted access to educational resources, research materials, and online learning platforms, regardless of their socio-economic background.
