“In April we started an upliftment project called The Go Show, where we travelled the country rewarding South Africans with all-inclusive digital makeovers as nominated for by our social communities. We offered them the digital equipment and connectivity they needed to match their self-motivation; enabling them to get up, get going and make the most of the opportunities in front of them,” says Mapula Bodibe, Chief Consumer Officer at MTN South Africa.
“From side-hustles to small businesses and struggling community projects, we are so humbled to have been able to help a handful of South Africans start on their roads to success. It has really been a rewarding and fulfilling project that MTN is immensely proud of,” continues Bodibe.
“It wasn’t enough for us, however. We have the digital services, devices and connectivity solutions to help our youth succeed at whatever they set their minds to and so, we’re very excited that the MTN Pulse is taking the reins of The Go Show to focus on our South African youth who have for the past 14 months had to, in most cases, put their lives on hold,” explains Bodibe.
MTN Pulse is all about empowering young people under 25, enabling them to dream, learn, grow, and succeed. It’s a platform that celebrates young people through discounted data offers, unique lifestyle experiences, and rewards just for being on the price plan. The Takeover with The Go Show is just one way we’re enabling under 25s with the digital resources they require to elevate their hustle.
