Mr. Sam Asmah, the Project Coordinator for Npontu, also seized the opportunity to highlight the significance of the Ghana Knowledge and Skills Bank (GKSB.gov.gh), a knowledge-based portal designed to offer Ghanaians access to valuable resources in education and skills development. He encouraged the students to utilize this platform as a tool to enhance their studies and expand their knowledge.

MTN Y’ello Care is an annual employee volunteerism program across the MTN Group, allowing staff to participate in community development projects in countries where MTN operates.

The initiative, which was started in 2007, has made a significant impact on millions of people and hundreds of communities across the continent. At the end of the program, the country with the most impactful projects wins a prize of $100,000 to be reinvested in community projects.
