The Malawi College of Accountancy (MCA) donated assorted textbooks for English and Sciences worth about K200, 000.00 to Chibavi Community Day Secondary School in the city of Mzuzu on Friday.
Addressing the students before presenting the donation, Harrisson Sindima, who is a lecturer at Malawi College of Accountancy, advised them to work hard and make good use of their time at school in order to realize their goals.
He stressed that if they were to become accountants, teachers, doctors, nurses or anything besides being meaningful Malawian citizens, they had first of all to concentrate much on their education.
Speaking to Nyasa Times after the donation, another MCA lecturer, Charles Chirwa, said the donation was part of MCA’s cooperate social responsibility.
“As MCA we realize that the future of Malawi as a country lies in the youth. We therefore feel obliged to extend a hand with the little we have to try and assist government in developing education in Malawi,” explained Chirwa.
Nyasa Times learnt that this was a countrywide operation for Malawi College of Accountancy to donate books to Community Day Secondary Schools; fifteen in each of the country’s three regions. The books are those that have recently been introduced in the new secondary school curriculum for Malawi.
Before Chibavi, they made a similar donation at Mchengautuba Community Day Secondary School, also in the city of Mzuzu.
Headteacher for Chibavi CDSS, Osward Lungu, said with the introduction of the new curriculum, the school had insufficient resources in terms of textbooks and thanked MCA for the donation.
“The consignment may look small but it will go a long way in assisting teachers in thorough preparation and delivery of their lessons. It is my appeal to more well wishers to emulate MCA’s example,” added Lungu.
