Communities hail Serengeti Solar Energy for implementing livelihoods transformation programmes

Communities surrounding Serengeti Solar Energy Nkhotakota Limited have commended the company for initiating various programmes aimed at improving their social and economic livelihoods.

The company, which is a leading provider of renewable energy solutions, particularly solar power in Malawi and beyond, has, among others, built modern and decent houses for vulnerable individuals and sponsors school-going children as a crucial step in livelihood restoration.

On Wednesday, the company handed over 60 mattresses to Kasamba Community Day Secondary and modern houses to two poor women from Alikanyenda and Liwewe II villages in the area of Traditional Authority (T/A) Malengachanzi.

In her expression of gratitude, village head Alikanyenda said the communities appreciate the role Serengeti Solar Energy has taken to improve and restore the livelihoods of the communities that were affected by the project.

“It’s very rare for an investor to give back to the communities like Serengeti Solar Energy. Other companies end their relationship with communities immediately after paying the compensations,” said the traditional leader.

One of the beneficiaries of the housing project, Hajat Amidu, could not resist, but to dance as an expression of her joy and gratitude for the gift.

“For three years, I have had no structure I could call a house. I was literally sleeping outside. I am very grateful to the company for this precious gift,” said Amidu, who lives with four dependents.

In his remarks, the company’s Plant Manager, Paul Mhango, said construction of the modern houses and donation to Kasamba CDSS are a demonstration of their ongoing commitment to social responsibility and community support.

Mhango assured the communities that Serengeti Solar Energy will continue providing support to them as part of its corporate social responsibility.
