Telco powerhouse Safaricom has unveiled an initiative labelled Ndoto Zetu that aims at positively transforming lives of communities across Kenya.
The initiative was crafted after a native comedian urged Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore last year to support the Divas Power Initiative that empowers kid from the slums across the country. The Divas Power Initiative is the brainchild of professional dancer Moesha Kibibi who is a prominent member of the FBI dance crew.
According to Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore, the initiative aims to support Kenyans doing extraordinary things for their communities.
“Through Ndoto Zetu we will select 500 such projects to support all the while enhancing many communities in the process. Because when we say Twaweza, we really do mean that when we come together, great things happen,” Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore is quoted as saying on the Telco’s website.
Consequently, Mr. Collymore pledged to educate 18 girls from Divas Power for a period of 5 years. The Telco has also invited other Kenyans like Kibibi who have dreams to transform their communities to apply for the programme.
“Under the Ndoto Zetu Programme, Safaricom is inviting Kenyans to share dreams and aspirations that they hope to achieve in 2019 that will positive affect their communities,” the Telco said.
To apply for the programme, interested Kenyans will be required to make written submissions to the Safaricom Website using the link https://www.safaricom.co.ke/ndotozetu or visit Safaricom retail shops countrywide and fill in application forms. The deadline for receiving submissions has been slated for April 6, 2019.
Safaricom has transformed millions of lives through community projects that range from schools, health facilities and water projects among others that have seen significant transformation of different communities across Kenya.
