OTJIWARONGO, 18 JUN (NAMPA) – The Central North Regional Electricity Distributor (Cenored) on Tuesday donated a multipurpose photocopy machine to Karundu Primary School at Otjiwarongo.
School principal Julia Chaka in an interview with Nampa said Karundu is a government school which is less resourced to cater for its 1 387 leaners on its own.
“Most of our learners also come from a poor background as their parents do not work,” she said.
A member of the school board, Johnson Kahimise said the school could not afford to purchase a photocopy machine. Cenored bought the photocopier for more than N.dollars 45 000.
“As a school board we are very grateful with for this donation,” he said.
Kahimise urged other companies to assist struggling schools to acquire photocopy machines and paper as most schools in the region cannot afford to do so with their contribution funds.
Cenored Public Relations Officer, Charlie Matengu on his part said the management of Karundu approached his company with a request for assistance.
“As part of our social corporate responsibility towards the education of a Namibian child, we found it necessary to donate the machine,” said Matengu.
Karundu offers pre-primary to Grade 7 and has 45 teachers.
