Airtel Nigeria Donates a Modern ICT Centre to Ijebu Community
Airtel Nigeria donated a fully equipped ICT centre to the community. They donated over 30 brand new computers to the Ijebu community. The computers are very modern and they are riding on Airtel’s robust 4G/LTE network. The telecom brand donated the centre to help empower the members of the community. According to the brand, it was designed to foster digital learning and give the community unfettered access to information. The telecom brand hopes the centre will usher in a new wave of innovation for the community in today’s technology-driven world.
Airtel Nigeria is very excited to offer opportunities that will help uplift communities, empower young people and transform lives. They believe that an ICT centre is critical to the success of a community and the development of both young and old because it offers a passport to the world. According to the brand, without ICT, a community will remain isolated, detached, removed, forlorn and hard to reach. They believe that the centre will allow more entrepreneurs to spring up. It will also allow the youth to become more productive and the entire ecosystem will blossom and become more prosperous.
