MPT Organizes SMS Donation Campaign For The Construction Of Eternal Peace Pagoda in Nay Pyi Taw

(Yangon, 28 September 2018) MPT, the country’s first and leading telecommunication operator, is today opening up an SMS donation channel for its customers who can now contribute their credit for the construction of the planned Eternal Peace Pagoda that will be built in Dakhina Thiri Township of Nay Pyi Taw.

To donate, MPT users just need to send SMS “500” to 9000 from 28 September in support of the pagoda which will celebrate the nation’s efforts and commitment towards peace for all its people and communities.  Each donation will be 500 Ks per SMS and customers can contribute as much as they want throughout the campaign period.

“The Eternal Peace Pagoda which will mark the noble pursuit of peace in Myanmar and for its people, will be a lasting symbol for the country many generations to come. In support of efforts for its construction and the appointed trustees (“Gawpaga”) to manage the pagoda upon its completion, MPT customers can helpfully donate through the SMS campaign on their mobile devices. With all the contributions, MPT will later be handing over the donations to the pagoda’s oversight committee. We are sure that we can count on the generous support of our users who can do their part for this inspiring endeavor,” said U Naing Ko Ko, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations.

The construction of the Eternal Peace Pagoda was announced by the Union Government earlier this year, with a ceremony for the laying of its cornerstone held back in May attended by President U Win Myint, and witnessed by venerable senior Buddhist clergy members. The pagoda, which was to both commemorate the country’s initiatives towards peace so far and to inspire continued peace in the future, will be a location of national significance.

The SMS channel to donate to this initiative will remain open until further notice from MPT.

MPT, MFF and MNL To Promote Development Of Myanmar’s Next Generation Footballers With Release Of Football Basic Skills Video Series

(Yangon, 25th September 2018) Young players from basic education schools and teams nationwide will receive a leg up as they hone their budding football development with a new educational video series launched by MPT, in collaboration with the Myanmar Football Federation (MFF) and the Myanmar National League (MNL), Regional Department of Township Football Association (TFA) and Department of Basic Education, covering the various fundamental skills crucial to becoming a capable footballer.

A total of 15,000 DVDs of the ‘Football Basic Skill Drill and Exercises’ videos will be distributed in eight regions including Bago, Mandalay, Mawlamyaing, Monywya, Pathein, Sittwe, Taunggyi and Yangon. Additionally, they will also be distributed to MNL teams, township football associations and at grassroots festivals as well as U-14 Football Tournaments for free from October. Designed to encourage technical growth and to promote a healthy lifestyle, these six informative instructional episodes will each address areas such as ball control, dribbling, passing, goalkeeping, shooting and small team matches.

“We are excited to kick off the MPT-MFF-MNL Football Basic Skills Video Series program to elevate the technical ability of our talented young players, who will be able to view and learn through simple easy-to-follow tutorials from qualified trainers. With the aim to encourage youth to become more active through sport and inspire Myanmar’s stars of the future, the videos will be provided for free to these students and children and promoted on MPT’s and partners’ platforms. We would also like to express gratitude to the MFF, the MNL and the Ministry of Education which are collaborating with us to ensure the success of the campaign targeting the country’s promising youth,” said Mr. Yoshiaki Benino, Chief Operating Officer of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations.

“In Myanmar, DVDs featuring content on basic football exercises have not been produced before and this is an important step for the country’s football scene. Instructional programs do exist but with most of these presented in English, there is a language barrier for children who want to learn the skills. With MPT’s support, we can overcome this and the Myanmar-language DVDs will help them acquire the key fundamental football techniques. Furthermore, we plan to produce advanced-level episodes in the future. On behalf of the MNL, we would like to thank everyone involved, including our main partner MPT that has been firmly supporting this initiative, for their part in developing our next generation of players and growing Myanmar’s football,” said U Soe Moe Kyaw, CEO of the MNL.

In line with the respective organizations’ commitment to support the growth of the sport in Myanmar, 16 schools will mark the grassroots events with screenings of the videos alongside special football Demonstration workshops conducted by 50 trainers in conjunction with the competitions. Additionally, the plan is under way to these videos to be accessible on MPT, MFF and MNL official websites and Facebook pages and on other platforms such as MPT’s Lo Ta Ya Portal and the MPT-MNL app.

In December last year, MPT entered into a strategic partnership with the MNL to promote football and support players development in Myanmar. Under “Myanmar in Our Heart” initiative, MPT will be teaming up with the MNL to host scouting events for children, university tournaments and other competitions focused on promoting good health among the people of Myanmar over the next three-year period.
