Kings Foundation Secondary School has urged people in the district to take a leading role in helping orphans and elderly as they lack lots of basic needs in their daily life.
Spiritual Coordinator for the School, Chrissie Pete said this during the presentation of the donation of assorted items to the needy at Ndagona Village in the area of Traditional Authority (TA) Kwataine in the district,
She said the elderly and orphans lack basic services such as food, clothes and shelter.
Pete said the school decided to come up with an outreach programme aiming at helping orphans and needy in the district to instill in the students a spirit of giving.
“We want to appreciate the support people from Ntcheu give us while instilling a spirit of giving to our students. As a school, we will continue with this initiative until we reach to the every needy in the district,” she said.
Head Boy for the School, Philip Mandela Phiri said the initiative helped them as students to observe and realize challenges people in the district face.
“We have observed that people around our school face a lot of challenges and that we can help them with the little we have.
We will make sure that we sustain the initiative so that the students that are coming should also adopt what we have started and reach to as many as we can as school,” he said.
Village Headman Ndagoma commended the school for their gesture by helping the needy in the community.
He said it was a rare thing to see a private entity considering people in the district and urged the school to continue helping them.
