Malawian Bank Donates MK20 Million To LUANAR

Written by  Malawian Bank Donates MK20 Million To LUANAR Apr 21, 2017

In an effort to ease inadequate learning and teaching space at the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR), FDH holdings has donated money worth MK20 Million towards the construction of a multi-purpose hall at the campus.

The money is part of the contributions made to the construction of the multipurpose hall which is expected to accommodate 1,000 students.

According to the University authorities the learning environment at the campus is currently pathetic and inadequate with school authorities finding it difficult to accommodate students due to the ever increasing number.

Speaking when he presented the donation, FDH Holdings Chief Executive Officer, Thom Mpinganjira said as a bank they believe the multi-purpose hall which they have contributed to will bring a positive impact enhance the teaching and learning environment at the university.

He said he expects that the institution will use the resources for the intended cause and guard against vandalism for the facility.

‘’Our expectation is that you will use the money for its purpose and ensure that the students will take care of the facility and not vandalize it whenever there are misunderstandings between them and management,’’ said Mpinganjira.

Luanar Council Chairman, Tim Seyani commended FDH holdings for the donation saying it has come at the right time when the university was struggling with the issue of learning and teaching space.

He said while they have the basic teaching and learning infrastructure it has now become inadequate with the ever increasing number that is being enrolled annually.

According to Seyani, with the policy of increasing access to education, Luanar has increased its intake over the years from 200 per year.

He added that this is becoming too much to handle and accommodate.

Apart from assisting the learning institution, the hall will also help the surrounding communities as at will be used as a tool for generating revenue.

Construction of the MK180 Million hall is expected to be completed by July this year.
