A charitable organization, Nzika Foundation, has announced ambitious plans to raise about MWK15 Million to assist needy students from the country’s public universities.
The foundation has organised a music concert at BICC in Lilongwe on Friday evening and a football match on Saturday at the Bingu National Stadium.
The gesture by Nzika Foundation follows a report by Timveni Child and Youth Media Organization which revealed that over 100 students from LUANAR’s NRC Campus are on the verge of withdrawal on financial grounds after failing to pay tuition fees.
One of the country’s renowned musicians, Patience Namadingo, reacted to Timveni’s advocacy for the students and promised to organize a show in support.
In an interview with Timveni, Team Leader of Nzika foundation, Gift Nankhuni, has appealed to Malawians of goodwill to patronize the events in large numbers to support the needy students.
He added that Driemo, Eli Njuchi and Patience Namadingo will perform live on Friday evening.
According to Nankhuni, the youth in Malawi should not fail to achieve their dreams due to lack of school fees.
On this note, he said the organization will line up different activities to raise funds for the needy students.
The Team leader emphasized that the money raised from the events will only support students in public universities.
Meanwhile Nyasa Big Bullets will play Silver Strikers on Saturday at Bingu National Stadium in the other fundraising event.
