One of Malawi’s business mogul Shiraz Ferreira has pledged that he will bankroll K300 million to support orphans and vulnerable children in the country to go to school.
Ferreira, who is the managing director of SF International, said entrepreneurs have a duty to support orphans and vulnerable children, saying his company wants to do that as part of its corporate social responsibility.
He said among others, his company will be providing education, social and moral support to Malawian children so as to become self-reliant and contribute positively to the national socio-economic development agenda.
“We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life, and there is nothing more life-changing than providing a young child with a better living and education.
“With no one to care for them, many of these children suffer from hunger and malnutrition. They also often lack parental care, inadequate shelter and limited access to education and healthcare hence our intervention,” he said.
S.F International boss sa said it is their wish to reach out to “as many needy children as possible”.
“We will work to provide educational opportunities to children that have limited or no access to education by providing school fees bursaries to HIV/AIDS affected orphans; most of whom live under the care of their grandmothers,” he said.
Ferreira said his company want to make a difference to the most vulnerable, orphaned children through different ways such as providing them with urgent needs.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
