Malawi’s leading telecommunications company Airtel has donated 500 chairs worth K2.3 million at Likuni Girls Secondary School.
The donation came soon after the company also gave 100 bags of cement which were used in the construction of the sports course at the school.
According to Airtel Malawi Corporate Social Responsibility Manager Norah Chavula, the company decided to donate the chairs after
realizing that lack of quality, inadequate teaching and learning resources affect a girl student’s ability to enjoy and appreciate the true value of the learning experience.
“Time and again Airtel has been an avid supporter of the education sector. This is so because we believe education is the key to the development of our nation and we believe that it is our responsibility as corporate citizens to do our part by giving to the society through assistance to the education sector.
“With education, entrepreneurs are created and groomed, with education a skilled workforce is bred, with education communities prosper and grow stronger,” she said.
The school’s headgirl Caroline Jumbe said the company’s gesture is a positive move towards motivation girls at the school as in the past they used to learn while sitting on the floor.
The school which belong to the Catholic Church has 600 students.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
