The books which were donated by Airtel Tanzania Limited and received by CCM Nzega District Chairman, Amos Kanuda and Itilo Ward Councillor, Paul Emmanuel on behalf of the school’s management will also help students improve their pass marks in one of the toughest subjects yet.

Kanuda said that it was important to recognize efforts being made by private companies like Airtel Tanzania in supporting the education sector in the country.

“We all understand that our government’s agenda on industrialization, but we cannot have industries without good performance in science subjects by our students. These books will increase the ability of our students in performing better in science subjects and in return will realise the government’s goal on industrialization,” Kanuda noted.

He called Airtel’s management and other corporate entities to continue supporting the government in improving education sector by investing creating better learning environment for students.

Airtel Tanzania’s Central Zone Manager, Abraham Mvela said the company believes in having an educated society with students getting their education in a good learning environment with availability of textbooks.

“On that case, it’s good to invest in our children’s education and that has been fulfilled by donating these books to Itilo School. We trust that these books will empower students to perform well in science subjects and also increase the number of students taking science subjects at this school,” Mvela added.

Speaking on behalf of students of Itilo Secondary, Annastazia Paul, a form three student, said that Airtel’s donation has come at the right time as the school is facing shortage of science textbooks.

“I take this opportunity to promise Airtel Tanzania that we will take proper care of these books for ourselves but also the coming intake,” Paul promised.

She added, “Shortage of science books in our school has pushed some of our friends to choose focusing on other combinations like Arts.”
