MALAWI: To promote quality education in the country, Kasungu-based non-governmental organization, NatureKit on Wednesday donated 30 desks to Nkhanga Primary School of Mbambo Village, Sub-Traditional Authority ( STA ) Chisinga in Kasungu.
The NGO’s Programs Coordinator, Nebert Mtika said the donation was a reaction to the school management's request indicating that the school has been operating for years without desks in all eight classes.
Mtika said the desks will now ease some of the challenges that the learners at the school face during learning and provide a conducive learning environment for them.
“I hope the desks will provide a better learning environment to the learners. Sitting on the floor is very tiring and reduces concentration in learners. We hope that this donation has come at the right time for them,” he said.
Mtika called on the government and other well-wishers to emulate what NatureKit has done and rescue over 700 learners who are sitting on the floor when learning.
One of the school teachers Zelifa Chimwala commended Naturekit for the donation saying this will now help learners at the school to work and improve on their daily attendances.
“To say the truth, this challenge is contributing to poor attendance among the learners. We are experiencing low-class attendance because of this challenge as most of the time, the learners do not feel comfortable sitting on the floor while learning,” said Chimawala.
Naturekit is is a youth-led organization that tackles issues about environmental conservation to change youths and community mindset towards environmental conservation to support biodiversity and ecosystem.
The donation was made possible with financial support from the Umunthu Movement and Evodrop.
