Standard Bank Malawi Donates Computers To TEVETA

Written by  Written By Elita NKALO in the capital city, Lilongwe May 15, 2017

One of Malawi’s commercial banks, Standard Bank has donated 25 computers worth MK5 Million to the Technical Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TEVETA).

This is to help students in technical and vocational colleges to be abreast with the digital and ICT revolution.

The donation comes at a time when most technical colleges in the country are facing shortages in learning materials.

Presenting the donation in Lilongwe, Standard Bank Chief Executive Andrew Mashanda said empowering the youths with necessary tools can help them realise their full potential.

“As a bank we believe that in addition to being an enabler through the provision of financial capital it’s also important that we provide them with tools that will help young entrepreneurs chase their dream of being job creators rather than job seekers’’.

Speaking when he received the donation Minister of Labour, Sports and Youth Development Henry Mussa stated that the computers will enhance the youth’s knowledge in information communication technology services.

He said more youths in technical, vocational and community colleges will be empowered in skills development thereby creating jobs on their own.

 

The computers will be donated to community technical colleges throughout the country.
