TECNO Mobile has announced the #GivingBackWithTECNO corporate social responsibility (CSR) drive. That will see the mobile phone company join hands with its customers during the Holy month of Ramadan and give back to society, in particular Sanyu Babies Home on Eid Day.
The CSR drive commenced on the 5th June and will end on 24th June, involving different activities across the city that will see customers buy selected TECNO Mobile models that is; the CX, CX Air, L9, L9 Plus, Phantom 6 and the Phantom 6 Plus from participating dealership shops in Kampala. A portion of the money from the sold models will be directed towards the #GivingBackWithTECNO campaign and will finalize with a visit to Sanyu Babies Home with selected items to donate to Children on Eid day.
The #GivingBackWithTECNO CSR drive will take a period of 3 weeks over which TECNO Mobile invites Ugandans to join it, in giving back by purchasing the selected models above. Amongst these models are TECNO’s latest Camon CX and CX Air, both best known for taking quality pictures, the L9 and L9 Plus also known for having outstanding batteries that can last over 72 hours without charge.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these smartphones will go towards buying items for Sanyu Babies Home and these will be delivered on Eid day on top of the company’s own contribution. The activities will run parallel both in the selected TECNO partner shops and on TECNO’s social media channels. Participating customers will also be awarded with assorted TECNO gifts as appreciation for contributing towards this cause.
Last year, TECNO visited the Ntinda School of the Deaf in a similar CSR drive and pledges to continue giving back to Ugandan society in the upcoming years.
Speaking during the launch of the #GivingBackWithTECNO campaign, TECNO’s marketing manager, Mr. Ralap Yang commented, “TECNO Mobile Uganda is doing this campaign during Ramadan in the hope that we can work together with our mobile phone users as well as potential users and help people in need. We thought of children in the orphanages and care homes who need love and care. We stayed true to the meaning of Ramadan through kindness and we believe Allah will appreciate it. I also hope that in the future, we can have more loyal TECNO fans join us and we work together in doing more kind deeds.
