TNM donates K1.2m desks to Muthe Primary school

Malawi’s Premier mobile phone company, TNM donated 40 desks worth K1.2 million to Muthe Primary School in Nkaya, Balaka which according to authorities at the school will go a long way in alleviating problems that learners have been experiencing over the years.

According to Head of Region of Southern Region, Francis Mwamadi, the donation was in line with the company’s policy of promoting the education sector in the country.

“We cannot talk about uplifting education standards in our schools when learning facilities and infrastructure are in dilapidated state. Muthe Primary School has had problems of desks which impacted negatively on education delivery. As a Malawian brand, we decided to come in and make this donation in order to ease the problem of shortage of desks,” said Mwamadi.

He said TNM believes that education is the backbone of the country’s socio-economic development but for students to excel in their studies, they need good learning environment as well as good learning materials and infrastructure. 

 “Good learning environment is very critical for one to excel. We hope that these desks will provide such an environment for the students at Muthe to learn in comfort,” he said.

He re-affirmed company’s commitment in supporting government efforts in the provision of quality education in the country. He said the education sector faces numerous challenges among them shortage of learning and teaching materials.

Mwamadi said government alone cannot address all these challenges as such there is a need for companies to come in and assist.

Headmaster for the school Nickson Chonga thanked TNM for the donation. 

“We very thankful to TNM because this donation will motivate our learners especially girls who most of time find difficult to learn on the floor”

Group village headman Nkaya also hailed the company for the gesture saying it will go a long way in reducing dropouts especially girls.

The desks have been bought from the Samaritan Trust, a charitable organization looking into the plight of street children and orphans as one way of supporting empowering them with vocational training skill such as carpentry.
