TML partners Ministry of Education as schools re-open
Total Malawi Limited has donated 10,000 face masks to the Ministry of Education to assist with COVID safety as schools reopen nationwide.
The donation was accepted on behalf of the Ministry by the Director of Education, Youth and Sports, Paul Chiphanda. In his remarks at a handover ceremony held at Lirangwe Catholic Primary School on 11th March 2021, Chiphanda intimated an appreciation for the Corporate Social Responsibility shown by Total Malawi.
"The government can not do everything and so we appreciate and encourage such public private partnership especially as we are reopening all schools and government is overwhelmed. Eventually this will be to the benefit of the whole community as by protecting our students you are protecting some of your future employees, he said".
The masks are to be distributed between several schools in the region and are expected to be a great help in schools such as Lirangwe Primary which was established in 1938, has 2028 students, and 38 teachers.
