PIC: Dr Chitera receiving gadgets from Commissioner Kanyuka
The National Statistics Office (NSO) has donated 200 tablets and 200 power banks to The Polytechnic which will be distributed among needy students, who are unable to access online learning due to lack of internet accessible gadgets.

Speaking during the handover ceremony which took place at the NSO offices in Zomba on Friday March 5, 2021 the NSO commissioner Mercy Kanyuka explained that they decided to make this donation as a response to the Buy a Gadget campaign being run at the Polytechnic.

“We have decided to donate these gadgets which we received from the government to the Polytechnic as we have also done to other colleges like Chancellor College, LUANAR, MUST, COM and KCN,” Kanyuka said.

Receiving the donation was the Acting Principal Dr Nancy Chitera who thanked the NSO for this kind gesture which she said will assist the institution to cater for some of the needy students.

“We have 1500 needy students who do not have internet accessible gadgets which hinders their education since some of the lessons are being delivered through the online learning,” said Dr Chitera.

She further encouraged other well-wishers to follow suit.

Those who wish to make contributions by donating whether gadgets or cash can visit the Principal or the Dean of Students at the Polytechnic, or call 0999 80 80 89.

Monetary contributions can be sent to Airtel Money account; ThePoly, or Mpamba account CODE; 600504 or FDH Bank account number; 104000072357
