The equipment, which includes pencils, ball point pens, note books, rulers and other learning materials was handed over to the Rotary Club of Lilongwe on Thursday  at a ceremony held at Capital Hotel.

Speaking after handing over the equipment, president elect for the Rotary Club of Northampton Becket Mike Kitchen said his organization did some fundraising to buy the materials.

“The materials are meant for needy students from schools in and around Lilongwe especially those in rural areas. There is almost everything that a student needs for his/her education,” said Kitchen.

Kitchen paid tribute to Shoprite for transporting the materials from South Africa to Malawi free of charge.

“We bought the items from Shoprite in South Africa and they offered to transport all the materials to Malawi free of charge,” he said.

President for Rotary Club of Lilongwe Sophie Kalinde hailed the Rotary Club of Northampton for the donation.

“We are so grateful to the Rotarians from Northampton Becket for this kind gesture.

“There are a lot of needy students in Lilongwe and Malawi as a whole who cannot even afford a pencil and this donation will go a long way towards improving the welfare of the beneficiaries in as far as education is concerned,” said Kalinde.
