MTN FOUNDATION PILLARS
MTN Foundation was officially launched by His Majesty King Mswati III on 26 June 2009. The rationale behind the establishment of the MTN Foundation in Swaziland was to create an umbrella unit within the company to manage and direct all corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects. As the leading corporate social responsibility partner in Swaziland, we continue to support a wide menu of social causes and activities in the country, particularly in the areas of education, health as well as arts and culture.
The mandate of the MTN Foundation is to “Change Lives and Transform Communities”. The MTN Foundation subscribes under four pillars:

The MTN Foundation’s ethos is to build sustainable and long term relationships with stakeholders.
