Dausi said this when TNM handed over a classroom block, a child care center and feeding shelter totaling to K31 million to the communities in Mwanza.
The company has constructed Tsegulani Child Care Centre, a feeding shelter at Kunenekude and a classroom block at Nthomba Primary School.
“On behalf of the communities in these three villages, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to TNM for this great support towards the education sector. Government alone cannot overcome challenges facing the education sector that is why we need private sector to come in and support us,” said Dausi.
He said the building of the multimillion projects in the area demonstrates TNM’s commitment in giving back to the communities it operates in.
“You can agree with me that TNM is always with us in different sectors including education and sports and I would like to assure the company that government will create a good business environment for companies like TNM to operate on so that they realize profits,” he said.

TNM Plc Acting Chief Executive Officer, Eric Valentine, said the projects were in line with the company’s commitments to develop various aspects of the Malawian communities through meaningful Corporate Social Investment Initiatives.
“As a truly Malawian company, TNM Plc is working on enriching the lives of Malawian citizens through the provision of platforms that will enable them to actualize their goals and dreams,” said Valentine.
Valentine said TNM was touched by the deplorable state of structures used by the learners in the area hence its decision to improve the situation.
Mwanza District Education Manager Gertrude Chipeta commended TNM for the initiative saying it will significantly improve learning conditions for pupils.
“Previously, learners dreaded the rainy season as it meant inconsistent learning due to the state of their shelters that they were using. This is a timely donation,” said Chipeta.
