Malawi Scotland Partnership (Masp) has launched a Communications Resource Centre at HHI in Blantyre to enable people have easy access to communications and information facilities.
Masp Board Chairperson Dr Mathews Mtumbuka said during the official launch on Saturday that the organisation said the facility was launched after observing that individual members and member organisations were having problems to effectively communicate with their counterparts in Scotland.
Mtumbuka said the opening of the resource centre to offer internet and presentation (projector), services would enable capacity building of its members.
“We observed that in Scotland our sister organisation is committed to communicate with our members and people here have no easy access to communication and information facility services,” Mtumbuka said.
But Mtumbuka, who is also Director of Communications at Airtel Malawi, disclosed that plans were underway to include more services at the centre such as conference centre.
Pastor Edward Mikwamba, Chairperson of Southern Region Cluster for Masp, applauded the organisation for opening up the centre which he said would go a long way in building the capacity of networking for its members.
“We are very grateful to the national office of Masp for opening the resource centre for our members. It will go a long way to build the capacity of our members in terms of networking,” Mikwamba said.
He also urged the members to take care in the usage of the facility.
