ETEPP

ETEPP

the etisalat telecommunications engineering postgraduate programme is a flagship corporate & social responsibility (CSR) initiative of etisalat Nigeria, launched on the 16th of May 2013.

the program, a first of its kind in West Africa, is a one-year taught master’s course in telecommunications engineering located in ahmadu bello university (ABU) zaria. in instituting this, we have collaborated with plymouth university UK, etisalat academy, UAE; and huawei technologies. to ensure a holistic and practical learning experience, huawei provided the equipment in the etisalat sponsored laboratory, and the etisalat academy, UAE and plymouth university are providing tutelage on technical courses specific to the telecommunications sector.

our commitment includes the provision of access to world class e-resources for the programme, sponsorship of lecturers of ABU to undertake PHDs at plymouth university, and facilitation of internships with etisalat Nigeria for the intakes of the programme in partial fulfillment of the course requirements.

through this program, we are building expertise and local content in the area of telecommunications engineering. we have been able to demonstrate sustainability of this project by promoting capacity building, local content and multilateral partnerships thereby increasing impact levels on its recipients, host communities and our business operations.

at etisalat Nigeria, we envision a future of sustainable economic and social impact through limitless reach. the MSc in telecoms engineering programme reinforces our commitment to using our CSR policy, strategy and initiatives to create this future.

fight malaria initiative

fight malaria initiative

with about 250 million malaria cases and nearly one million deaths which put about 3.3 billion people (half of the world’s population) at risk of malaria, our focus on the health platform is aimed at reducing the malaria scourge through the fight malaria initiative.

this is a two – pronged approach education and active action, adopted to actively combat the disease which is one of the most rampant killers of Nigerians and a detriment to the growth of the Nigerian economy.

over ten thousand insecticide-treated nets have been distributed to local government areas and secondary schools, in different communities in the northern part of Nigeria. the schools in which the insecticide treated nets are distributed have instituted in them ‘student leaders against malaria’ (SLAM) clubs. this initiative was piloted in kano state, in partnership with the malaria foundation international (MFI), and its Nigerian affiliate, the society for youth awareness and health development (SYAHD).

in addition we have partnered with malaria no more, the national malaria elimination program and federal ministry of health, to disseminate information on the prevention and control of the spread of malaria. this has been done using innovative mediums such as social media, SMS messages to our subscriber base, and other engaging channels; with the end goal of ultimately eliminating the malaria scourge from Nigeria.

m-health initiative on combating maternal and infant mortality in nigeria

m-health initiative on combating maternal and infant mortality in nigeria

according to UNICEF, Nigeria is the global second largest contributor to the maternal and infant mortality rate. we support the m-health initiative as part of our growing efforts to uphold good health practices and eliminate causes of maternal and infant mortality in Nigeria, with mobile technology.

through our m-health platform, we have distributed phone lines and data to health care providers, to enable them correctly examine and diagnose conditions that cause maternal and infant mortality. we have partnered with instrat global health solutions for a smooth registration and data collection process.

powered by etisalat Nigeria 3G, the mobile partner solution clinipak wirelessly captures patient data and delivers real time reporting. it helps health care workers increase productivity and modernises the clinical experience, creating a huge impact on health management.

adopt-a-school

adopt-a-school

we have partnered with the lagos state government to bring about sustainable change and development to public primary and secondary schools in the state, by adopting three schools in lagos state for life – akande dahunsi memorial high school, ikoyi; edward blyden primary school, lagos island; and rabiatu thompson primary school, surulere.

 

career counseling initiative

career counseling initiative

the career counseling initiative is designed to appropriately guide students of secondary schools in the junior and senior levels, towards making sound, positive and fulfilling career decisions which will provide long-term benefits to them, their families, organizations, and ultimately the nation.

our focus is mainly on our adopted schools, but other schools are equally included in the program.

the career counseling scheme, an employee volunteering program is an aspect of the internal CSR of etisalat Nigeria. through volunteering, our employees have the opportunity to fulfil their desire to impact positively on our host community and the society at large. our employees are encouraged to volunteer their time and employ their skills in providing career counselling as well as mentorship to students of secondary schools.

the career counselling scheme is a continuous program which is designed to be implemented quarterly. through it we are equipping the Nigerian youth with the tools and information they are provided with at these sessions, to enable them transform themselves into worthy ambassadors of their homes, state and the nation.

alignment with international standards

alignment with international standards

at etisalat Nigeria, we recognize that it is our moral obligation to improve the environment. in order to correctly identify the areas of our business that are harmful to the environment, we operate an environmental management system (EMS) in line with ISO 14001:2001.

the EMS enables us to conserve natural resources, reduce waste generation, and explore new ways of improving our environmental performance.

combating HIV/AIDS

combating HIV/AIDS

in recent times, we have boosted the drive to increase awareness on HIV/AIDS in Nigeria and drive its prevention and control, with the provision of a toll-free line for the abuja based national call centre of the national agency for the control of AIDS (NACA).

now, etisalat subscribers in Nigeria can call the centre for free to receive information and counselling on HIV/AIDS and related issues. we are also providing technical support and back-up for the seamless operation of the agency’s call centre in the war against HIV/AIDS.

in a bid to reinforce our commitment towards this intervention, our partnership with the joint united nations programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) was recently established to contribute efforts towards eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV.

teacher training programme

teacher training programme

etisalat Nigeria in collaboration with the british council launched a teacher training programme in 2011. this is an initiative designed to strengthen teaching skills in Nigeria, beginning with the english language in recognition of the pivotal role that the language plays in general education in the country.

it had been identified that the performance in english language of primary and secondary school students was on a steep decline, and poor knowledge of english language generally also affects employability, mobility and ultimately the economy of the country; hence the staging of this intervention to address these issues.

the programme has focused on teachers of english language in primary/secondary schools in kaduna, rivers and oyo states so far. they have been retrained in english language teaching styles and delivery, with the contents of their lessons also improved; to enable them keep up pace with international standards in english language teaching skills.

we are certain that the retrained teachers in english language and other subjects to be tackled in due course will have better grasp, understanding and knowledge of their respective courses; thus improving the students’ performance in local and international examinations.

ebola virus disease containment/awareness initiative

ebola virus disease containment/awareness initiative

in the course of 2014, the nation encountered an alarming outbreak of the ebola virus disease. official statistics from the world health organization indicate that a good number of fatalities emanated from this incident.

in a bid to reinforce our commitment within the health platform to promote private and public partnerships, we provided phones, SIM cards and airtime towards the ebola containment fund across the affected geo-political zones in order to help drive the awareness and the eventual elimination of the disease.

to further promote awareness and action towards its elimination, we also championed the dissemination of information to the public through our sponsored programmes on radio stations across the country, in collaboration with the Nigerian red cross society.

eco SIM cards

eco SIM cards

as part of our efforts in providing eco-friendly as well as sustainable products and services, we have partnered with oberthur to make available innovative SIM packs called eco SIMs.

the cards successfully cut in half the amount of plastic waste used for the production of a SIM card. they are manufactured with 50% less plastic, and the environmental footprint of this SIM card is half of that generated by the classic SIM card, from 16g of C02 to 8g of C02 generated per card. this is because the new format uses half the quantity of plastic for production, thus reducing waste generation.

beyond our eco-friendly products and services, we are partnering with reputable institutions, organizations as well as government bodies in driving our environment-friendly green initiatives. our partnership efforts are generally geared towards mitigating the effects of climate change as well as ensuring a sustainable environment.
