Airtel Uganda, The Smartphone Network, has embarked on a journey to change the lives of all Ugandans with a new ground-breaking reality television series.
Titled ‘Together We Can’, the 52-part TV show will explore a range of issues currently being faced by all Ugandans, including poverty, health, education and selfless service. Each story that will be showcased on the series will end with the ultimate celebration of these Ugandan heroes when Airtel awards them with prizes that enable them to fulfill their dreams of helping others.
Speaking at the press conference to announce the show, Airtel Uganda Managing Director Mr. Tom Gutjahr said “At Airtel, we are passionate about making a positive impact on the communities in which we operate and this is why we are producing a TV show to change the lives of people and communities” adding that this phenomenal series seeks to reward individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to their family or community by granting them one wish that will change their lives and enable them to continue helping others.
This is not the first time that Airtel Uganda is making an effort to contribute to the community in which they operate. Every year, Airtel Uganda, under its ‘Adopt-A-School’ Program “adopts” a school, and goes on to improve all of its facilities including classrooms and libraries. This program ensures access to quality education for underprivileged children from disadvantaged communities, in an effort to contribute to the overall development of the country. At present, this program, across Uganda, has changed the face of education in four schools.
‘Together We Can’ is going to be aired on NTV, NBS and Bukedde TV.
