A charcoal seller Luwialuwia Makina from Traditional Authority (T/A) Thomas in Thyolo has donated K2 million he won in TNM Ufulu @50 Promotion to Nkokachombwe Primary School in the district for procurement 61 desks.
Makina, 37 is one of the 50 TNM customers that won a total of K100 million in the [email protected] promotion that TNM conducted in 2014 to celebrate the country’s 50th Independence anniversary.
Each of the winners was required to choose a social responsibility project of his/her choice worth K2 million, translating to K100 million.
Speaking after the handover ceremony of the desks, Makina said he believes that education is backbone of country economy hence the need to get adequate support.
“I am very happy that through TNM’s Ufulu @50 promotion I have been able to donate these desks. Although I’m not educated but I still believe that education is very crucial in social-economic development of this nation,” said Makina.
Makina urged the school authorities and the pupils to take good care of the desks so that they last longer.
“I would like to encourage the school authorities to make sure that the desks are being taken care of so that other pupils who will be enrolling at the school in future should also use them,” he said
Headmaster of the school, Martin Fabiano commended Makina for choosing Nkokachombwe Primary School to benefit from the initiative.
“We have a total of over 300 pupils in classes from 1 to 6 but we had no desks since the ones we had broke long time ago and the school is very thankful to TNM and Makina for this timely donation,” said Fabiano.
TNM’s Public Relations and Sponsorship Manager Limbani Nsapato said the company was satisfied with the projects that have been handed over so far as they have spread across all social fabrics of the society.
Nsapato said TNM believes that education is the backbone of the country’s socio-economic development but for students to excel in their studies, they need good learning environment as well as good learning materials and infrastructure.
“The handover of the desks demonstrates our company’s commitment in fulfilling its promises to customers in Thyolo and the rest of the region. Through this promotion, we have touched almost every social fabric of the country,” he said.
Last week , TNM scooped the Life changing brand award during the 2015 Chartered Institute Marketing Awards for its [email protected] promotion in which 50 communities received a total of K100 million for social projects of their choice.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
