MTN Zambia announced that it has made access to online learning platforms free for university students so that they can adapt to learning from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To make this possible, MTN Zambia has partnered with the University of Zambia, Copperbelt University and Mulungushi University.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and affect our lives, we will continue to offer timely support to our customers who are adapting to homeschooling during the period when learning institutions are closed,” says MTN Zambia CEO, Bart Hofker
This partnership means that university students from the three learning institutions will not incur any cost for accessing their university’s e-learning platform. All the student needs is an internet-enabled device and an active MTN SIM Card.
MTN Zambia CMO, Seun Soladoye added that “we are hopeful that this contribution will help to improve the access to quality education in Zambia and avoid students and institutions from losing out on valuable time while institutions are closed due to the COVID Pandemic. By accessing these e-learning platforms for free, our Zambian students will be able to catch up on their school work without worrying about data costs and be on their way to a brighter future. We are working on adding on more universities. ”
