Mukuru Makes Book Donation to Schools in Zimbabwe
Cape Town (24th May, 2017) – Mukuru, a leading remittance company, has donated textbooks to 3 high schools in Zimbabwe namely Churchill Boys High, Harare High and Mufakose High 1.
Mukuru, a South African based company, has embarked on an effort to expand its social responsibility activities to include its remittance destinations such as Zimbabwe and Malawi. School fees payments are one of the most common purposes for remittances and it seems appropriate that a corporate social responsibility program begins with a focus on education. The donation of over 130 books included Mathematics and Computer Science textbooks as well Shona novels.
Mukuru’s Country Representative, Tawanda Chinyani said,” Mukuru is keen to make an impact on communities beyond facilitating easy money transfers. We value growth through learning and felt it was fitting to get involved with supporting educational institutions in Zimbabwe.”
“Our Shona department was in a rather challenging position with sharing ratios of up to 10 students per book. We are glad Mukuru has stepped in to support us.”, said Mrs Satande of Harare High.
Churchill Boys High’s deputy head Mrs Shoko cited the need for up to date learning material particularly in subjects that such as Computer Science that evolve quite rapidly and expressed gratitude to Mukuru for their contribution.
