NICO Group has donated laptops to female students at Kamuzu University of Health Sciences (KUHeS), as NICO Pensions General Manager, Gerald Chima, attributed the donation to the Group’s understanding that due to the pandemic, students cannot afford to have the right gadgets for online studies.
“We are determined to always do our part when it comes to education,” he said. “With an educated nation, we can enjoy the fruits of this beautiful nation as we will have more educated leaders to put right policies in place.”
KUHeS Associate Professor of Molecular Biology, Dr Arox Kamng’ona, expressed gratitude towards NICO, stating that the gesture will go a long way in helping our underprivileged students. Due to the pandemic, we had to introduce online classes and some students were struggling as they did not have gadgets to enable them to attend the virtual lessons.
On the other hand, the donation further emphasizes NICO’s commitment to serving in the education sector and to date the Group, which celebrates its 50th anniversary, has sponsored K14 million towards this cause.
