Nokia – a shining Giant in a quickly shrinking world of crisis.

Nokia, Nokia Siemens Networks and Save the Children Finland in Partnership to Provide Water, Sanitation and Health Education to Alaba Special Woreda

The collaboration between Nokia, Nokia Siemens Networks and Save the Children Finland was initiated as a response to the urgent needs of children and their families in Alaba Special Woreda, an area which is severely dependent on rainfall and, where people are forced to travel every day over 20km to fetch water during dry seasons.

“This partnership emanates from the belief that the solutions to emergency situations have to be driven by long-term sustainable efforts that centre on community upliftment,” emphasized Micheline Ntiru, Head of Community Involvement, Nokia Middle East and Africa. “Forging partnerships with the local government and community is paramount to bringing meaningful change in any community.”

“Children form the most vulnerable group that is worst affected by the current emergency, therefore our partnership strives to strengthen their right and access to water and sanitation, as well as enhance the livelihoods of the community,” explains Dr. Tibebu Bogale, Save the Children Finland’s Country Director in Ethiopia. “The project aims to improve the lives of thousands of children and adults with sustainable results that will allow new community development initiatives to be undertaken in the future.”

THIS is a company that spends its money not greedily on its CEO’s but ALSO on the needy people of the world that have NO chance in buying ANY of its products/services – and THIS in such a world financial crisis after not only announcing global sales of cellphones will drastically drop (makes sense why the N97 will not ship till 2nd QTR of 2009) but also that global marketshare and projected/estimated revenues to drop as well.

I don’t see ANY company like this delivering advances in cellular collboration, education in communication – that Nokia World 2008 keynotes blew me away, but also not needing to advertise on human events like this. THIS makes me definately think more about Nokia’s slogan in such broad avenues – truely helping people communicate – on need for survival on this one.

Nokia – a shining Giant in a quickly shrinking world of crisis.
