Airtel Rwanda Touching Lives

Introduction and Background

Airtel Rwanda Touching Lives is an inspiring Corporate Social Responsibility initiative that seeks to offer practical relief, assistance, hope, opportunities and credible platforms to liberate and empower the underprivileged, disadvantaged and hard to reach persons in our society.

It is aimed at recognizing and supporting individuals and groups who have made outstanding contributions to their communities. The Touching Lives Initiative will be conducted in 13 episodes which will feature 26 emotion evoking stories of people that will benefit from this initiative.

The beneficiaries of the Airtel Touching Lives initiative will be carefully selected from a pool of nominations by members of the public/community all over the country – which will later be reviewed by Airtel officials to verify if truly the nominated members of the society are suitable to benefit from this initiative

The activities of Airtel Touching Lives will be recorded and aired on Television with a view to promoting the spirit of giving, self-sacrifice and love among Rwandans.
