General Manager for MTN Ghana Northern Business District, Nii Adotey Mingle on Wednesday morning launched this year’s version of the Yellocare Programme dubbed “Quench and Connect” in Kumasi.

The GM called on the company’s staff to get involved in the activities earmarked under the project.

Explaining during the launch, Mr Adotey said the Yellocare event is an annual programme where MTN Staff go out to communities they serve to undertake voluntary activities.

Some of these activities, he mentioned included teaching, painting, building of computer labs and many others for 21 days.

However, for this year, he noted that Yellocare programme would be undertaken for 30 days instead of the 21 days since 2024 marks the 30th year MTN came into existence as a brand.

“In Ghana this is the 17th year since MTN Yellocare was introduced and has had our employees and staff working out as volunteers on activities that bordered on health, education and economic empowerment but for this year instead of the 21 days we would have it for 30 days to mark our existence as a brand in the world”, the General Manager stated.


This year, the General Manager said boreholes would be constructed in some schools across the sixteen regions of Ghana  would be beneficiaries of the Yellocare programme. 

He noted that the selection of the schools was done by the MTN Foundation.

The beneficiary schools, he disclosed would have boreholes sunk for them and these would be fitted with digitalised control system to enhance easy accessibility of water.

Beneficiary Schools:

Some of the beneficiary schools include, Church of Christ School-Ejisu, Konadu Yiadom-Agona Asamang, Sunyanis SHS and Kintampo Senior High School. 

Anita Owusu from the Ejisu Church of Christ School told this reporter that she was excited to learn about MTN projects.

She noted that previously she thought the company only dealt with urban and rural telephony and data services. 

Gregory Adom of the Konadu Yiadom School commended MTN Ghana for adding his school to the list of the beneficiaries of the Yellocare care programme. 

“I am praying that MTN Ghana  would be able to give the experience we are having today to other schools across Ghana  so that we can benefit from modern education and digitalisation”, Master Adom appeealed.
