One of the Malawi’s leading commercial bank, IndeBank has reaffirmed its commitment to the corporate social responsibility in the country towards alleviating some of the challenges in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment.
IndeBank’s Marketing manager Maxwell Ng’ambi on Friday presented 10 scholarships to 10 visually impaired students of Ngabu secondary school in Chikhwawa district.
He said as the bank they are aware of the challenges that visually impaired students are facing in terms of their access to all forms of socio economic opportunities.
Ng’ambi said they decided to offer scholarships to 10 students as one way of empowering them, saying the importance of education cannot be over emphasised.
He said the bank knows some of the challenges that visually impaired students are experiencing in accessing education and even if when they access it delivery to meet their special needs is another critical issue, that’s why the bank decided to offer scholarships.
Ng’ambi disclosed that Indebank will be paying the student school fees up
until they finish their secondary school.
He then urged the student to develop their intellectual capability, leadership potential and desire to make a contribution to the country.
One of the beneficiaries Sandra Chimphonda thanked IndeBank for the timely donation which she said will go a long way to make her dreams of one day becoming a journalist fulfilled as the scholarship will help her to work extra harder in class.
She then urged other companies to emulate the good gesture taken by IndeBank to come forward and sponsor other needy students in different schools.
The scholarship will see IndeBank paying K500, 000 for the 10 visually impaired students.
