Airtel Nigeria, leading telecommunications services provider, will hold an exclusive VVIP event on Saturday, February 4, to premiere the third edition of its CSR initiative, Airtel Touching Lives.
The premiere, which will hold at the Eko Hotel & Suites, will be attended by several dignitaries and will serve as a platform to promote the culture of giving, self-sacrifice, love and charity among Nigerians.
Top business executives, philanthropists, important government personalities, leaders in Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), media chiefs and prominent Nigerians have confirmed to grace the premiere of the CSR initiative.
The Airtel Touching Lives is a corporate social responsibility initiative designed to offer practical relief, succour, hope, opportunities and credible platforms to liberate and empower the underprivileged, disadvantaged individuals, families and communities in the Nigerian society.
The activities of Airtel Touching Lives are recorded and produced for national television with a view to promoting the spirit of giving and love among Nigerians.
Following a successful and widely acclaimed two seasons of the programme, Airtel Nigeria, in September last year, announced the Season 3 of the Touching Lives CSR programme and subsequently received thousands of entries/nominations in form of email, SMS and letters.
Speaking at the launch of Touching Lives Season 3, Mr. Segun Ogunsanya, managing director and chief executive officer, Airtel Nigeria, said the telco rolled out the third edition of the programme based on the success recorded with the first and second seasons.
According to him, “Airtel believes that to be a great company it must be good company and we are very much committed to earning our social license – the love and acceptance of the people we serve”.
Scheduled to be aired on satellite and terrestrial TV stations in Nigeria and across Africa, the Airtel Touching Lives Season 3 captures the interventions of the telco toward less privileged individuals, people and communities in Nigeria.
