EXIM Bank has donated 10m/- to the Asma Mwinyi Foundation (AMF) towards the purchase of construction materials to renovate toilets at Kandwi Elementary, Primary and Secondary School in Unguja.
Handing over the donation to the school’s founder, Asma Mwinyi, who is also the Chief Executive Officer on Sunday, the bank’s Head of Marketing and Communications Mr Stanley Kafu said supporting the communities will continue, especially in education and health sectors.
“We are committed to serving the people, business and the general community. Exim Bank and AMF share a mission of supporting educational efforts and growth of our students and schools in the country. Children spend most of their days in school and so the provision of a healthy sanitation environment is essential,” he said.
“We are excited to play a role in elevating the education environment in Zanzibar and we see AMF as a good partner towards it. We have always been a big supporter of education in our community, and we look forward to expanding that effort in Zanzibar.”
On her part, the school’s CEO Ms Mwinyi appreciated the bank’s community minded spirit, saying the donation will touch the lives of so many students and for many years to come.
“Our sponsors, volunteers and partners like Exim Bank are critical in our success. We are honored and humbled to receive this support. The same will be used to renovate toilets at Kandwi Elementary, Primary and Secondary School,” she said.
