Ooredoo Myanmar has carried out a “Back-to-school” donation initiative for underprivileged children across Myanmar.
The donation campaign took place during throughout the month of June and provided full sets of stationery items to students from monastic education schools, youth training centres, and orphanages across the country, Ooredoo Myanmar said in a statement.
The initiative came in fulfilment of the company’s three core values of “Caring, Connecting and Challenging”, the statement noted.
Ooredoo team members reached out to 30 monastic education schools, youth training centres and orphanages throughout the country to donate over 100,000 units of much-needed exercise books, rulers, pencils, pens, raincoats and backpacks to more than 20,000 students from those schools.
This donation programme is part of Ooredoo Myanmar’s ongoing initiatives to support education and social development.
The initiative started with “The more you speak, the more Ooredoo will donate” campaign in September 2017, and has already contributed 1.2bn Myanmar kyat from its revenue, which has been channelled into the building and renovation of 33 school buildings and educational centres in need of infrastructural improvements.
All these educational initiatives focus on empowering children nationwide to become more informed, independent and have a better future through the power of education, the statement adds.
U Tint Naing Htut, head of corporate communications at Ooredoo Myanmar, said: “Education is one of our key CSR (corporate social responsibility) pillars because we understand it’s an investment in human development and will have a great impact on Myanmar’s future.
“We hope that with these back-to-school donations, students will have some of the materials they need to motivate them to reach their full potential.
“We are proud that ‘The more you speak, the more Ooredoo will donate’ campaign is able to improve not only the lives of one generation but also future generations to come.”
