Speaking when handing over the iron sheets to the First Lady Dr. Gertrude Mutharika, Marketing and sales executive for Super Sakuwa Steel Limited, Enock Chithonje said as a Malawian company they understand some of the challenges girls face to access quality education in the country which include decent accommodation.
“As an institution which is a Malawian we thought of supporting BEAM TRUST so that the goals of the Trust should be accomplished. We believe that Malawi can develop with us, that’s why we thought of playing our role by supporting BEAM Trust,” he said.
The iron sheets which are valued at 3 million Kwacha are among others expected to help in the construction of girls’ hostels under a project the Beam Trust is currently involved in.
Super Sakuwa has also presented a 2.5 million Kwacha cheque for the procurement of awards to schools that have performed well in the ‘My School My Pride' competition being run by BEAM and Independent Schools Association.
Speaking on behalf of the BEAM Trust was the Chairperson Mayamiko Mwinjiro who expressed gratitude towards the donation saying it will help them minimize costs for the project.
“This donation will help our operations, we are still running projects like building girls hostels in some places,” he said.
