Bwaila Media club donates textbooks to Chadza 1 CDSS
Journalists in the central region under the banner Bwaila Media club on Friday 7 January 2022 donated books and tree seedlings to learners of Chadza 1 Community Day Secondary School in Lilongwe.
Speaking on behalf of students at the school, Doreen Matias said the books will help improve the quality of their studies since the school lacks books.
We are very grateful that we have received these books, we will make sure that we use them effectively and also take good care of them, said Matias.
Matias said the tree seedlings they received will help them restore vegetation around the school.
Today we have planted trees with help from Bwaila Media club and we have been taught how to take care of these trees for our school to regain its vegetation cover, added Matias.
Commenting on the same, Headteacher at the school, Joseph Chunga said the books will help the students to be knowledgeable enough and also help them prepare for examinations.
I have seen the books that the club have brought here are crucial books which will help improve students studies to analyze contents fluently and be able to answer some questions, regarding the tree seedlings we will be encouraging the students to take care of the tree that has been planted since they will help protect the infrastructure here from heavy winds, said Chunga.
In his remarks Vice Chairperson of Bwaila Media Club, Sylvester Kumwenda said as a club they do not only focus on the capacity of its members but also how they can help in developing the country in various aspects.
Kumwenda said they know that learners in different schools lack resources hence the donation of the books to the school.
Knowing that most schools lack resources we have therefore taken the initiative to donate the books to inspire the learners to remain in school, and also considering the issue of climate change we thought it wise to also donate these tree seedlings to make sure that the youth are able to take part in issues of addressing effects of climate change added Kumwenda.
Bwaila Media Club donated 33 senior secondary school textbooks worth K208, 700.00 and tree seedlings worth K17, 000.00.
