TIGO GIVES CHILDREN A REASON TO SMILE DURING EASTER
Tigo Ghana extended its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to some orphanage and under privileged homes in Accra during the Easter festive season, where it treated over 200 kids from Osu Children’s Home, Street Academy and AbaCode to an exciting two- hour show at the first ever Circus in Ghana.
It was amazing to watch the delight and excitement on the faces of these kids as they made their way into the circus grounds to watch amazing motor bikes stunts, fantastic acrobats and breath-taking animal entertainment. The applause and shouts from the kids as the show went on was enough testimony of the good time they were having.
Mr. Tenu Awoonor, Head of Marketing Services for Tigo Ghana told BiztechAfrica Tigo is proud to associate itself with the Italian National Circus to put smiles on the faces of these children.“Tigo is proud to be associated with the Italian National Circus’ first ever visit to Ghana and as part of Tigo’s efforts to make this experience a lasting one on Ghanaians, we are happy to give these children the Easter experience they otherwise would not have had. Inspiring the lives of children and putting smiles on their faces on such a day is an honor for Tigo.”
Mr. Awoonor further added that Supporting Communities and Improving Lives is still a major key in all Tigo’s CSR projects with uplifting children being the main focus.
Each child went home with a Tigo gift pack after all the fun and excitement at the circus. It was a memorable day for the children who hardly enjoy such moments.
Marie-Eve Lemeux, the Head of AbaCode Ghana, Ataa Lartey Head of the Street Academy and the leadership of the Osu Children’s Home expressed their gratitude to Tigo for granting these children an Easter treat since they rarely get such opportunities. They jointly urged other corporate organizations to emulate Tigo’s example.Tigo has once again succeeded in putting smiles on the faces of these children and given them yet another unforgettable day in their lives.
