Vodafone Ghana Foundation to support More SMEs
The Vodafone Ghana Foundation has made a pledge to collaborate with other organizations of interest, so together they can help the growth of Small and Medium-scale Enterprises.
The Head of the Foundation, Mr. Amaris Nana Adjei Perbi, said the foundation has plans underway to expand and reach out to more SMEs to aid in the fight against unemployment.
Speaking at a sustainability review session on its various initiatives and project impact for the past year, he opined that the foundation will expand and reach out to more women entrepreneurs and SMEs.
“Last year, we partnered with the UNDP to activate women that are in small-scale industries. We made sure we set up businesses for 2000 women up north, and also going forward this year we are looking at certain opportunities to widen the horizon of women entrepreneurs”, he explained.
The Foundation says it will embark on more collaborations this year in order to reach out to individuals and communities across the country.
“We will reinforce our activations across the communities in the country. We will do more collaborations too”, Mr. Perbi added.
The aim of the Foundation is to support sustainable initiatives that drive social change, improve people’s lives and solve pressing social needs.
The foundation also provides a formal process for charitable contributions to be made to communities, community groups, and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in Ghana who are key partners in responding to social and economic development issues in the country.
The vision of the Foundation is to be regarded as the most caring telecommunication brand in Ghana, by empowering and giving access to tools and facilities that support sustainable social change.
