Airtel Kenya has donated 200 phones to the Police Post in Coast province. The phones will be bundled with golden numbers. A golden number is a special number with digits that are easy to recall from memory in times of need and emergencies. The partnership will cover all police stations, police posts and patrol bases in the Coast Province.
Explaining why Airtel took up this initiative, Airtel Kenya managing director Mr. Shivan Bhargava said, that his Company believed that business was not an end in itself but rather a means to helping the society achieve more, and that Airtel has a special role in helping Kenyans accomplish more in their daily lives.
He added that, “Airtel’s association with the police in the Coast Province is a way of creating positive impact in our communities and ensuring that security is enhanced through a fast, reliable and affordable means of communication in line with the Company’s vision of delivering quality mobile connectivity to all Kenyans.’
