Airtel Uganda has announced an extension of its partnership with Buganda Kingdom for three more years.
We are proud to restate our commitment to the Buganda Kingdom partnership because of the value it has delivered for us, the kingdom and the community. We are culturally aware of the organizational strengths of Buganda Kingdom, and the unwavering commitment to lift the people out of poverty. This aligns with our sustainability agenda of transforming lives in areas we operate in. To support these strategic goals, we made a commitment to progressively offer affordable voice, data and financial services on Airtel’s 100% 4G network that covers Uganda border to border.
We have supported grassroot football talent development through the Masaza Football tournament. We have continued to provide local economic opportunities for young people through the strong Airtel- K2 distribution network of franchise partners, agents and suppliers.
We found a valuable partner in the delivery of programs in trade, sports, health, education, agriculture and other sectors. It gives us immense joy to announce the renewal of our contract with Buganda Kingdom for 3 more years. We believe this partnership will go a long way in boosting the Kingdom’s activities as well as improving the livelihoods for our people.Ali Balunywa, Managing Director, the Sales Director, Airtel Uganda
Our partnership has been founded on 4 key pillars to include; health, because you need a healthy population to participate in the various economic activities, sports for entertainment and social engagement, nurturing talent for the youth who take part in the various sports engagements, and cohesion because it continues to build togetherness.
We appreciate the support that we get from Airtel Uganda, and the renewal of this contract is timely as it will help us to continue hosting some of the Kingdom activities like the Kabaka Birthday Run which is now in its 10th year, the Masaza football tournament among others. Hence I urge our people to embrace the Airtel brand because it supports our core values.Charles Peter Mayinga, Katikiro of Buganda
