Chrissy Dickson has become the latest TNM customer to contribute towards her community after emerging one of the winners of TNM’s Ufulu @ 50 promotion.
Dickson has donated her K2m prize money for building toilets at Ndirande-Matope Primary School in Blantyre.
Speaking during the handover ceremony Dickson, 43 said her choice of toilets was in response to shortage of the facility at the public school.
“As a woman I know the importance of good toilets at the school because girls here unlike boys will always need to visit well-covered toilets at all time at the same time promoting hygiene and sanitation,” she said.
Matope Primary School head teacher Chrissy Chimwala thanked TNM for facilitation of the project at the school.
“We have over 1934 learners here at the school against 12 toilets but the coming in of TNM with these facilities the school sanitation and hygiene will really improve and reduce cases of diseases that come as result of poor sanitation and hygiene,” said Chimwala.
TNM’s Head of Blantyre Region David Nyirenda said the handover of the toilet facilities demonstrates company’s commitment in fulfilling its promises to customers in Blantyre and rest of the region.
“This is a life-changing promotion as prizes are going to worthy causes that will go a long way at community level. The current prize presentation phase demonstrates TNM’s commitment towards Corporate Social Responsibility and meeting its obligations under [email protected] promotion,” Nyirenda said.
Member of Parliament for the area Themba Mkandawire and chiefs were among the people who witnessed the event.
Dickson 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 with Malawians as the country commemorated 50 years of Independence.
Each of the winners was required to choose a social responsibility project of choice worth K2 million, translating to K100 million.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
