Chrisy Dickson, one of the winners in TNM’s Ufulu at 50 promotion, has made a contribution to her community through construction of K2 million worth of toilets at Matope Primary school in Ndirande, Blantyre.
Speaking during the handover ceremony, Dickson, 43, said her choice of toilets was in response to the shortage of the facilities at the school.
“The construction of the toilets was the best I could think of because these pupils were at risk of diseases,” she said.
Head teacher at Matope Primary School, Chrissy Chimwala, commended Dickson for the gesture and TNM for the promotion.
She said with 1,934 learners, the school did not have adequate of the new ones will improve sanitation and hygiene and serve as an encouragement to learners, especially girls at the school.
TNM head of Blantyre Region David Nyirenda said the handover of the toilet facilities demonstrates the company’s commitment to the fulfillment of its promises to its customers and the Malawian society.
“This is a life-changing promotion as prizes are going to cause changes that will go a long way at the community level. We are satisfied with the way all our winners have done with the prizes,” said Nyirenda.
Each of the 50 winners in the promotion, which were held in 2014 as part of Malawi’s 50th independence celebrations, was required to choose a social responsibility project of their choice worth K2 million, translating to K100 million.
