Airtel Promotes Sustainability Education, Commissions Learning Facility for Green Fingers Initiative

Leading telecommunications service provider, Airtel Nigeria, has officially handed over a newly constructed sustainability learning facility to Green Fingers Initiative, a beneficiary of the 7th season of the Airtel Touching Lives corporate philanthropy program.


The handover took place on Tuesday, 11th June 2024, at the Green Fingers Center in Lagos, as part of the World Environment Week activities organized by Airtel Nigeria across the business.
Following Green Fingers mission to promote awareness on sustainable practices, the sustainability facility constructed by Airtel Nigeria will serve as a hub for learning, enabling children to engage and understand the importance of recycling, waste management and the circular economy.
Speaking during the event, Chief Executive Officer, Airtel Nigeria, Carl Cruz, stated that the project embodies the telecom giant’s belief and commitment to sustainability practices, expressing confidence in the positive impact of the company’s support for Green Fingers Foundation on global environmental protection objectives.
“Airtel’s donation to the Green Fingers initiative is a demonstration of our dedication to nurturing youth, the young minds, and encouraging innovative solutions to environmental challenges. Through the sustainability facility, we hope to drive positive change and foster a sustainable future for all of us, most especially for the future of the world,” he said.
Mr Cruz also encouraged members and students of Green Fingers Conservation Learning Center to put the new facility into productive use. He said, “We firmly believe that by equipping our youth with the knowledge and skills to manage waste effectively, we are investing in a brighter and cleaner future for Nigeria and the world at large, and we believe that the Green Fingers team and students benefitting from the project will put the facility to good use.”
Founder, Green Fingers Initiative, Chinedu Mogbo, expressed gratitude to Airtel, describing Airtel’s support as an advancement for the ongoing effort to educate youths on environmental issues.
“At Green Fingers Initiative, we teach youths about climate and our immediate environment. It’s been our tradition over the years to recycle plastic in creative ways, bringing it down to the level of young people working to be actively involved in raising their voices for a cleaner and safer environment. Having this new learning facility, students can now effectively learn more about climate and other environmental issues that affect our everyday lives within a more comfortable space,” he said.
Recall that in celebration of this year’s World Environment Day, themed “Land Restoration Desertification and Drought Resilience”, Airtel Nigeria had earlier hosted an enlightening session for its employees, with a focus on strategies to combat plastic pollution.
Airtel remains unwavering in its dedication to environmental stewardship and reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG), and the handover to Green Fingers Initiative is a testament to this commitment.
