Uganda’s First 5G Network, Airtel Uganda, has announced the awarding of 14 top-performing pupils from our adopted schools in the recently released Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) results. The award ceremony took place at the Airtel Uganda offices, emphasizing the commitment to education and community development.
This initiative, now in its 9th year, underscores the importance of collaboration between the private sector and educational institutions in creating a conducive learning environment. Airtel Uganda Managing Director, manoj murali, extended congratulations to the outstanding learners, dedicated teachers, and entire school communities involved in the Adopt a School program.
The secondary school start-up kits provided to the top performers include essentials such as a suitcase, mattress, pillow, bedsheets, mosquito net, school bag, scholastic materials, Airtel-branded goodies, and more. This initiative reflects Airtel Uganda’s dedication to supporting education, empowering communities, and creating positive change.
