The company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, Norah Chavula, said the donation was meant to help the college in areas where it was lacking materials like books and expressed the hope the students would be encouraged in their studies with the donation.

“We are pleased to donate these books to St Joseph College and it is our sincere hope that these books will assist the students in their studies,” said Chavula.

He added that Airtel would continue investing in various sustainable projects by supporting initiatives that focus on improving education in the country.

Mary Muzombwe, who is the Chairperson and Library Committee, said during the handover ceremony that the donation came at the right time because the college lacked enough books in their library.

“It is true that shortage of books at our college hinders students’ morale in studying science subjects and capability of understanding them accurately.”

He thanked Airtel for their valuable support towards improving the quality of education and urged other companies to emulate their example.

“This will not only be a big boost in academic performance but will raise students’ morale,” concluded Muzombwe.

Hospital manager Sister Mercy Kanyumbu, said the move was a step in the right direction towards solving the shortage of teaching aid challenges that the institution faces.

He said the donation will enable students to perform better.

Sister Kanyumbu also asked other companies to help St Joseph College with a generator, as the it has no backup during electricity blackout.

“Frequent blackouts are affecting studies to our students, as such we ask well wishers to help us with a generator,” she said.
