IHS Towers began in Nigeria in 2001, and Nigeria remains our largest market. The company started as a provider of site build services for mobile network operators in Nigeria, but has gone on to develop deep expertise in all aspects of telecom towers. We operate from our head office in Lagos but have regional offices in Abuja, Ibadan, Enugu, Asaba, Kano and Port Harcourt.
We also operate two datacenters – in Lagos and Abuja – enabling us to support our Network Operating Centers (NOCs) with a high-quality IT infrastructure, robust security and a reliable network.
Key CSR Projects
In 2018, IHS Nigeria implemented a range of initiatives across
the Group’s four CSR pillars which include Ethics,
People, Environment and Education.
Two educational initiatives, namely School on Wheels and IHS
Project Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), were launched
to support the talent pipeline for high-growth STEM sectors thereby aiming to help
create future technological leaders. The School on Wheels project provided
training to over 7,200 students in 24 selected secondary schools across 12
states throughout the country. Project STEM supports ICT training for teachers
in public and low fee-paying schools and included the development of a STEM app
embedded with the national ICT curriculum which is designed to enhance the
teaching and delivery of ICT training in the classroom.
Over 420 youngsters participated in our Skills for Life Program
which aims to economically empower individuals through training in
entrepreneurship and skills. Participants were also provided with start-up
tools to set up small-scale businesses.
IHS Nigeria also supports select CSR-focused thought
leadership forums. During 2018, IHS Nigeria sponsored the ThistlePraxis
Consulting Sustainability Conversation Program, a platform which sought to
discuss recent sustainable development initiatives in Nigeria. Following the
event, a white paper was published and sent to policy makers in the private and
public sectors for further action.
In 2018, IHS Nigeria's Generator Recycling Program donated
recycled generators to local hospitals, schools and orphanages most in need
across the country with over 9,100 people benefitting from these new sources of
power. Under this initiative, we also maintained our partnership with SOS
Children’s Villages and established a new relationship with Pathfinder
International - a global non-profit organization that focuses on reproductive
health, family planning, HIV/AIDS prevention and care, and maternal health.
IHS Nigeria’s Employee Volunteering Program continues to develop and saw teams contribute to local community building through initiatives such as school rehabilitation, health center renovations, mentoring sessions for school children and charity visits.
