ICS made the observation when they offered to paint a resource centre at the Ekwendeni School of the Visually Impaired last week.

The ICS chairperson, Kondwani Mwamlowe, said the group decided to paint the block as one way of displaying active citizenship.

“We wanted to motivate the kids both emotionally and academically despite their disability,” said Mwamlowe.

In her remarks, Mary Gondwe, proprietor of the resource centre thanked the alumni for changing the face of the block.

During the exercise, ICS also donated hand washing hand pails to be placed in each hostel and vegetable seedlings to boost their financial needs plus cater their dietary needs since it is a boarding school.

ICS Alumni, as the group is commonly known, was formed last year and it is a grouping composed of ex-volunteers of Progressio Malawi.

Their aim is to enhance active citizenship among members to enhance development, and chapters in all the three regions of the country.
