May 25, 2012

 Since 2011 MTN Business has been working in partnership with the Wildlands Conservation Trust and Qhubeka, to empower rural communities and children across South Africa. Over the past 12 months, as part of the MTN Business Qhubeka product offering, MTN Business with customer Etana Insurance, have raised funds to the value of over R35 000, and yesterday, MTN Business Qhubeka benefited the lives of the broader community in Vosloorus, by handing over 20 bicycles to children in the area, all of which was aided through the funds raised.

 The MTN Business Qhubeka product offering differentiates MTN Business by allowing businesses the opportunity to embark on a social responsibility initiative while simultaneously addressing their communications requirements. This enterprise solution offers voice, data and ISP solutions, customised to the corporate, where a portion of the total spend is contributed towards the Qhubeka initiative.

Says Angela Gahagan-Thomson, Managing Executive of MTN Business; “MTN Business is privileged to be part of the broader Qhubeka initiative aimed at mobilising communities, changing lives and building a sustainable future. Yesterday, by handing over the Qhubeka bikes towards the continued development of such a project, we are another step closer to realising this objective.”
