Malawi’s leading commercial bank FDH has donated four computers and two printers worth K4.3million to Chichiri Prison to facilitate exams at the prison.
FDH Bank Head of Marketing Levie Nkunika said they decided to make the donation because it was found that some prisoners have been conducting studies but have had challenges during exams because the prison had limited equipment
“As a bank we appreciate that reform is an integral part of development and it is essential that reform initiatives are promoted so we decided to step in with the donation .
“When prisoners get education, there is hope that when they leave prison they can add value to the country other than committing crimes,” he said.
Education Coordinator, Assistant Superintendent Samson Zwangeti hailed the gesture by FDH Bank and said it will go a long way in promoting education at Chichiri Prison.
“The inmates are sitting for exams in a few days and we are happy since the equipment guarantees that they will be able to take the exams,” he said.
FDH is a champion for growth and believes education is an important cornerstone for growth in the country.
The banl funds several education initiatives in the country including scholarships at MUST, KCN, UNIMA and Hope for the Blind.
