October 6th will remain a remarkable day for Mhuju community members of T/A Mwahenga, Rumphi district, as the National Economic Empowerment Fund Limited (NEEF) made a significant donation of 75 much-needed student desks to Mhuju Primary School, catering to the needs of 150 learners. This noble act serves as a token of appreciation for the community’s diligent repayment of loans received from NEEF.
Reminiscing on the great relationship established with its clients and the commitment to community welfare, NEEF stepped in to address the pressing issue of insufficient desks at the local school. Mr. Beza, a NEEF Board member, lauded the exemplary conduct of Rumphi residents and praised T/A Mwahenga and his chiefs for their unwavering support of NEEF’s initiatives.
Mr. Sadiri Munthali, the Head Teacher of Mhuju Primary School, expressed immense joy, stating, “The donation of these desks will significantly benefit the school, especially during exams when desk shortages were most acute, to the extent that I had to bring chairs from my own house for the learners to use.”
The Chairperson of Rumphi District Council, Mr. Harry Munyenyembe, commended NEEF’s focus on education, highlighting that the desks will create a conducive learning environment and ignite learners’ motivation.
With an impressive repayment rate of 93%, Rumphi district has been a standout beneficiary of NEEF’s loans. In the Rumphi North Constituency, where Mhuju Primary School is located, the repayment rate stands at a remarkable 98%. NEEF has disbursed a total of 1.9 billion to the district, positively impacting countless lives.
