The donation is part of its corporate social responsibility the institution does in various sectors of development in the country.

Presenting the books on Friday, PIL General Manager, Enwell Kadango said the institution realizes the importance of education hence its contribution to government's efforts.

He said Ng,onga CDSS is the sixth school the institution has reached out to this year alone with two more schools to be reached out before the end of this year.

"We understand government has structures, but sometimes it can not manage to have everything hence our coming in to assist with the materials thereby contributing to quality education.

"In the education sector we work in collaboration with the Ministry of Education donating books and other educational materials to needy public schools because we recognize that education is the foundation of development,” said Kadango.

The institution believes the books will assist the school respond better to the new secondary school curriculum which needs to be complemented with new text books.

PIL sets asides 50 million kwacha every year towards its corporate social responsibility drive targeting health and education sectors.

Commenting after receiving the donation on behalf of the school, Education Division Manager for the North, Temwa Msiska described the development as timely while hailing PIL for its continued support in the education sector.

“The government is distributing books to schools but such gestures ensure the school have enough materials, it also helps learners find the books with ease as most of them can not manage to buy from book shops,” said Msiska.

Head teacher for Ng’onga CDSS, Jonathan Kanyenda Banda could not hide his excitement following the donation saying it has come at a time when the school was struggling to cope with the new secondary school curriculum.

“The development will help learners use books of their own unlike in the past when they used to share in groups,” noted Banda.
