Employees of Tigo Ghana, showing love and care in the month of February, joined renowned music icons in the country to donate items and spend quality time with some selected institutions in the Ghana.
Institutions that benefited from the initiative include the Dzorwulu Special School, the Ghana Blind Union, the Weija Leprosarium, Kumasi Central Prisons, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in Takoradi.
Tigo Ghana believes that after a successful ‘Drop that Yam’ Campaign that encouraged most people to get into the smartphone space last December, it is about time they switch into the next phase of the campaign which is geared towards encouraging every Ghanaian to adopt a better values, lifestyle and behaviour. Staff took the lead in putting smiles on the faces of all Ghanaians not only by donating but also by going a step further and spending quality time with inmates, patients and students of these selected institutions.
According to the Human Resource Controller, Goodnews Yao Kasper Dzramedo Tigo want people to put a stop to all the outmoded practices and negative attitudes in their lives. "This Valentine we are asking Ghanaians not hold back! Drop that yam and start showing love and care," he added.
At the Akropong School for the Blind located in the Eastern Region of Ghana, Tigo Ghana staff, together with renowned Ghanaian Gospel Artiste Kwesi Oteng, presented items worth thousands of Ghanaian Cedis to the blind students and their teachers. Oteng performed some of his popular songs for the pupils, to thunderous applause and shouting that filled the school auditorium.
