Mobile phone service providers Celtel Malawi Limited donated six computers to three Community Day Secondary Schools in Mulanje West Constituency in Malawi as well as 12 Motorolla phones to community leaders to facilitate easy communication in the area.
The donation was in response to the needs by pupils and teaching staff within the area to apply Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as a vital medium and driver for education and social economic development. The gesture was in line with one of Celtel's corporate social responsibility pillars, which is to support education in Malawi and other countries the company operates in on the African continent. In the education sector there is a long term programme known as 'Build Our Nation' under which companies assist needy schools with learning materials. This initiative will be coming to various community schools around Malawi very soon.
