“MTC is committed to playing its role as a responsible and good corporate citizen and in doing this; the company is guided by the Sustainable Development Goals, the National Development Plan and applicable laws.”
MTC’s Chief Human Capital and Corporate Affairs Officer, Tim Ekandjo said: “It is public knowledge that there are brilliant students out there, who owed to financial challenges are not able to further their studies. We are thus, however, through the MTC bursary scheme, proud to be extending a helping hand whenever possible.”
