social projects - supporting education

airtel Uganda, the leading Corporate supporter of Education in Uganda, joins other stakeholders towards achieving the second millennium development goal.- to achieve universal Primary Education by 2010; notably, the Ministry of Education and Sports which has partnered with airtel in this mutual cause. Through airtel’s Build Our Nation education campaign over 140 Primary Schools across the country have received text books worth over Uganda Shillings 380 Million. The books as well as other scholastic materials from airtel have helped to keep pupils in school, addressed the poor pupil text book ratio, improved on the reading culture and have generally improved on the teaching and learning process resulting in better performance.

Through airtel Uganda, several Universities have benefited from University grants that they used to complete or complement various academic projects. They received this support as participating Universities in the inter university Academic Quiz tournament; the airtel Africa Challenge (ZAC).
