Kumwenda, who plays for Melbourne Vixens, has also donated  sports equipment to Munjiri Community Day Secondary School as part of her sports development initiative at grass roots level.

“I had plan to visit few schools in the north so that I can donate netball uniforms. I went to Mzimba secondary school where I did part of my secondary school and Munjiri community day secondary school,” Kumwenda told Nyasa Times.

“I have donated these because this is where my netball career started so I  want to encourage the girls to work hard in whatever they are doing and avoid early marriages,” she added.

The equipment included sets of uniforms and balls.

Kumwenda said she want  as many girls as possible to take up netball seriously.

She recently also donated sports equipment to Zimbiri Primary School in Chikwawa.

The lanky shooter said she wants to share “whatever I have with these girls so that they too can have that opportunity I had.”

She said there is need to have “proper equipment” in schools to inspire young girls to take the sport seriously.

Kumwenda is now linking up with Malawi Queens for training camp  in Blantyre in preparation for the Fast5 World Netball Series  scheduled for Australia
