Airtel’s ‘Touching Lives Season 3’ nominations open

Airtel’s ‘Touching Lives Season 3’ nominations open

At the unveiling of Season 3 of the initiative in Lagos recently, Managing Director, Mr. Segun Ogunsanya, explained that through Touching Lives, Airtel offers practical relief, succour, hope, opportunities and credible platforms to liberate and empower the underprivileged, disadvantaged and hard to reach persons in the society.

“At Airtel, we believe that to be a great company we must first be a good company, and we are very much committed to earning our social license, the love and acceptance of the various communities and people we serve.

“When we launched the maiden edition of Touching Lives, major stakeholders especially the media
wanted to know if the initiative was a one-off and if the launch was just for media exposure and brand building.

Our responses haven’t changed – Airtel Nigeria is committed to creating positive impact in the various communities it operates in and we are genuinely inspired to uplift the less privileged around us as well as create prosperity platforms for many Nigerians on a long-term, sustainable basis,” Ogunsanya said.

Recounting how the CSR initiative has brought positive change in the lives of some Nigerians, he noted that through Airtel Touching Lives, the company provided potable water for several starved communities, built maternal and health centres for remote communities, built and renovated schools to provide quality education to the less privileged.

In a goodwill message, publisher of Business Day newspaper, Mr. Frank Aigbogun, one of the special guests at the event, commended Airtel for giving voice to the voiceless, supporting the down-trodden and bringing smiles to the faces of needy Nigerians.

He noted that Airtel was not compelled to invest in charity, but inspired purely by love for the less privileged people.
