Electricity Generation Company (Malawi) Limited (EGENCO) on Tuesday, 24th September 2019, donated various school amenities, including; calculators, school shoes, sanitary pads, pens and soap to female students at Nkula Community Day Secondary School.
Speaking during the handover ceremony, Chief Executive Officer for EGENCO, William Liabunya, said female students must be given a chance to excel in education.
“Our company is committed in supporting the government and the school to ensure that female students excel in education. There should be no reason for them to fail.” Said Liabunya.
Accepting the donation on behalf of the students, Head Teacher for the school; Grace Utumbe hailed EGENCO for the support, saying it will motivate the girls to work hard in school.
“We are thankful to EGENCO for the assistance. This will encourage the girls and motivate them to work hard in school.” Utumbe said.
She further appealed for more support in construction of a school library, laboratory, classroom blocks and teacher houses.
The support to Nkula CDSS comes after EGENCO recently established a scholarship for female students as girls are a vulnerable group, often dropping out of school due to poverty and other cultural practices and beliefs that discriminate against them.
Chikwawa Community Day Secondary School is another school that is benefitting from the scholarship.
