At the recent brand re-launch of Tigo’s digital revolution at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Accra, the Deputy Minister for Communication, Ato Sarpong, praised the company for its social responsibility flagship project, Shelter 4 Education.
He commended the project for its positive impact on the lives of school children, the beneficiary communities and the country’s educational landscape as a whole.
“Over the past few years, Tigo has been top of mind in the media, particularly with Shelter 4 Education, building schools across the country. The project supports government’s effort to tackle the lack of educational infrastructure particularly in rural parts of the country,” he said.
The telecoms company constructed four schools and refurbished two others expected to serve as motivation to encourage parents to send their wards to school, thereby increasing enrolment.
Tigo launched its new tagline ‘Live it. Love it.’, which reflects the company’s ambition to become the most consumed digital services brand of choice.
At the launch, the Deputy Minister was hopeful of the telecom sector and upbeat about Tigo’s transformational journey, explaining that despite the various industry challenges over the year, Tigo is still a dominate force in the market.
He praised the company for investing millions of Ghanaian cedis in the last couple years to improve network quality, rollout of new cell sites and data centers.
