The bank’s Central Zone Manager, Nsolo Mlozi said during a handover ceremony last week that there is need for stakeholders to back state efforts to increase classrooms so that all form one students should be in schools before the end of this month.

“As a bank which understands the importance of education, we are duty bound to support state investments in the sector,” Mlozi told Manyara Regional Commissioner, Joseph Mkirikiti who received the donation.

He said although the government has been allocating a lot of resources to improve public schools, more children are enrolling because of the free primary and secondary education policies hence overstretching available facilities.

“We hope that with this donation, more classrooms will be constructed to make sure that all form one students get in school before end this month,” Mlozi noted while unveiling that the six schools are Aytesea, Galapo, Madunga, Magugu, Nar and Qash Secondary Schools.
