MOKO bails out needy secondary school students

Posted in

The initiatives’ Marketing and Team Leader Lucius Gerald told us in an interview that 40 needy Community Day Secondary School (CDSS) students have already benefited from the school fees across the country and that they are still paying for others who are waiting for authentication.

Gerald expressed his excitement over what their initiative is doing to the needy students.

“We are very excited that with the little we have sourced, we have managed to reach out to needy students from CDSSs, and we aim at raising more funds so that we can help a good number of students,” said Gerald.

Gerald said they came up with the decision to launch the initiative after observing an increase in the number of students who are failing to complete their secondary school education due to a lack of school fees.

He said the one to be considered for the initiative’s beneficiary list has to give full evidence that he or she is needy and cannot afford to pay the school fees.

Gerald added that their initiative wishes to reach out to more needy students in Malawi.

On his part, one of the beneficiaries James Phiri from Chankhomi CDSS in Rumphi commended MOKO for the support saying it will help him to work hard in school.

“I can see the bright future of finishing my education through the school fees MOKO has given me. I urge them to continue this and reach many students who are facing the school fees shortage problems,” said James.
