As part of its corporate social responsibility Copperbelt Energy Corporation (CEC) recently handed over text books to the Mwangala Mwenda Foundation prior to the start of the 2019 year.
According to the company, the books are just some of the essential supplies the Foundation requires for the school year to support 34 primary and community schools located in Kalabo District of Zambia’s Western Province.
The grant from CEC has enabled the Foundation to purchase 510 text books, valued at K20,000, for grades 7 and 9. The books will be distributed across 10 schools when the school year starts in February.
The Foundation is a non-governmental organisation formed in 2016 with a vision to empower women and young girls in Kalabo District by providing project funding and education support.
CEC integrates responsible corporate citizenship into its operations and growth strategy to create sustainable value for all its stakeholders.
Education stands as one of the core pillars of CEC’s social investment, hence, the support rendered to the Mwangala Mwenda Foundation.
