How One SMS Changed Over 500 Lives In Abuja

Blessing Adams’ face was priceless as she listened to the laughter of over 500 students. She was filled with joy and a sense of fulfilment for being a conduit of blessing to other humans.

Blessing is the only PTA Teacher in UBE Primary School Kutunku 2 Gwagwalada Abuja, where over 500 pupils unanimously chorused “thank you aunty Blessing” at the assembly ground. The excited children flaunted their new school bags containing exercise books, pencil cases and raincoats.

Blessing was one of the thousands of Nigerians who nominated their communities for projects under the MTN What Can We Do Together initiative. She had jokingly sent a text and now, her school pupils were singing and benefiting from that simple gesture!

What Can We Do Together – in its third year – is geared towards developing grassroots communities through collaborative efforts. It provides Nigerians with the opportunity to nominate their community for a developmental project, including refurbishment of Primary Health Center, provision of borehole and supply of school learning materials in primary schools.

Over 300,000 communities were nominated in 2018 for the third phase. The screening process which began in January 2019 had officials traveling to multiple locations to verify the nominations by Nigerians.
