Blantyre, July 16. 2017: Blantyre Water Boards (BWB) has donated school learning materials worth K2 million to Ulongwe Model Primary School and Pasani Primary School in Mulanje District as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Chief executive Officer for BWB, Henry Bakuwa, said his company appreciates the challenges that learners meet in some schools in the country hence the donation of desks to Ulongwe Model Primary School and exercise books and ball point pens to Pasani Primary School in Mulanje District.

“The schools that we donated to are within the area where we are implementing the water project which will supply water to Blantyre and surrounding areas. The water project is very huge and once in place, it will benefit a lot of people. BWB will therefore support many schools and hospitals in the area,” said Bakuwa.

In his remarks, Mulanje Central Member of Parliament, Kondwani Nankhumwa, in whose constituency Ulongwe Model Primary School falls, said his constituency will take care of the desks and also support BWB as it implements the project.

“BWB has our support as it implements the water project in Mulanje district. Let us all support the company and make sure that the company’s dream comes into reality,” he said.

Also commenting on the donation, Mulanje Pasani Legislator, Angie Kaliati, in whose constituency Pasani Primary School falls, hailed the water utility company for donating exercise books and ball point pens to Pasani Primary School.
