MTN Uganda launched a digital campaign dubbed ‘Choose To Challenge’ aimed at celebrating women challenging the status quo.
The campaign was about nominating women making a positive change in different communities below their tweet on Twitter.
“We’re all surrounded by incredible women who inspire us every day. Nominate a woman making a positive change in your community for special MTN recognition. Tell us who she is and what she has done to make a difference. Use the tags #MTNWomen #WomensDay #ChooseToChallenge” MTN tweeted.
MTN selected 5 Women winners from the campaign and announced them on their Twitter handle that every winner will be given 1,000,000shs from MTN which will be sent to their MTN Mobile Money numbers.
