Petroleum Importers Limited (PIL), the country’s major fuel importer has donated 50 desks worth K1.8million to Kabwinja Community Day Secondary School (CDSS) in Madisi, Dowa District as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Presenting the desks to the school during the weekend in Madisi, PIL General Manager, Enwell Kadango , said his company is committed to supporting government in improving the quality of education standards in needy schools of the country.
“Our company understands that most schools have inadequate learning resources yet the demand is usually very high especially in public schools,” he said.
It is for this reason, he said, that in their company’s 2017 CSR plan they have set aside an amount of K50million for reaching out to needy institutions in the education and health sectors.
He said PIL place special emphasis on supporting education to ensure youths’ needs and aspirations are adequately met.
In his acceptance remarks, the Schools Head Teacher, Beston Chiphale expressed excitement that the coming in of the desks has changed the school for the better.
“More students especially girls who dropped out due to lack of desks will come back to continue their education at this facility,” he said.
However, the school has five students, two girls and three boys who will seat for this year’s Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE)
