The MTN Uganda Foundation is a not-for-profit legal entity that was inaugurated in July 2007 as a vehicle through which MTN Uganda implements its corporate social investments (CSI). The foundation strives to improve the quality of life in communities where MTN Uganda operates in a sustainable way.
The MTN Uganda Foundation invests resources for social redress, thus empowering people by skills transfer, preserving and nurturing their heritage, culture and arts, while also supporting local sports and sports development.
Our goal is to improve quality of life, through caring partnerships, in communities where MTN operates.
For us, CSI is about equitable and sustainable socio-economic development, actively engaging in proactive self-regulation.
We aim to do the following:
- Promote an active solidarity between MTN Uganda and the communities within which we operate
- Take part in activities of general interest, having a philanthropic focus on education, science and technology, music, arts and culture, health, habitat for humanity and other actions of humanitarian character
- Contribute to the promotion and protection of material heritage and national culture
The strategic objectives of the MTN Uganda Foundation sponsorships are formulated to address national needs:
- Arts and culture
- The environment
- Community development
- Low-cost housing/shelter
What we do
The MTN Uganda Foundation partners with both public and non-profit credible organisations to execute sustainable projects in each of the chosen focus areas. The MTN Uganda Foundation receives and processes proposals quarterly.
The Foundation is committed to ensuring that the selection and approval of its projects are conducted in a manner that is transparent, systematic, efficient and effective while promoting its mission. As such, approved guidelines are strictly adhered to in the selection of projects and partner organisations.
Since 2013, the MTN Uganda Foundation has focused on three programme areas to guide its interventions:
- National priority areas (NPA), which will be guided by the prescribed National Budget priority areas for each year.
