Slated to take place on the 20th of this month, the MTN Kampala marathon was yesterday afternoon boosted by Huawei with Shs 250 million in a bid to support the schools’ sustainable sanitation in Kampala.
Like it has been every year that the event is organized with a cause, this year’s event is aimed at raising funds towards the construction of bio toilets with water harvesting facilities and environmental friendly bio gas technology. The bio toilets will reduce the cost of energy used in preparing meals for school children in Kampala.
“In MTN’s business foot prints, Huawei Uganda was the first to partner with us and we are glad to work with it (Huawei) even in the future.” says Mr. Wim Vanhelleputte, the Chief Executive Officer of MTN Uganda.
The ceremony that took place at Huawei Uganda head offices at Rwenzori Towers also saw more than 150 of the company’s staff confirm their participation to the MTN Kampala Marathon 2016.
