Ex-Chipasula students donate 200 chairs to alma mater

Former students of Chipasula Secondary School in Lilongwe have donated 200 chairs to their alma mater, a development Minister of Education, Science and Technology, Dr. Emmanuel Fabiano, has hailed as very encouraging.

Chipasula is one of the schools that was developed with financial support from the International Development Agency (IDA) in the city but years later, most of the schools are in sorry state.

The conditions of the schools are largely because of lack of care on the part of communities and reported cases of vandalism on the part of the students.

Fabiano emphasized that they expect students and communities take care of the schools once they are handed over to them.

“The responsibility to take care of the schools rests in the hands of the communities,” said Fabiano, while commending the alumni for the gesture.

Acting alumni chair, Chrispine Ngunde, said they decided to regroup after noticing that the school was no longer in a good state.

He said they will “continue to do what we can” to reduce some of the challenges the school was facing.
