Madison General Insurance Donates K65, 000 for the rehabilitation of a Classroom block at Mpande Primary School in Kafue District

Madison General Insurance Company Zambia Limited (MGen) has continued to support the community through its partnership with World Vision Zambia by donating K65,000 (approximately, US$3,800) towards the rehabilitation of a Classroom block at Mpande Primary School in Kafue District.

Speaking at the handover event held at Madison House, MGen Managing Director Chabala Lumbwe said “MGen’s survival and existence has been reliant on the fact that the community has continued to support us and it is only right for us to show gratitude by getting involved in activities which improve the quality of lives of the people living in these communities”.

Back in 1997, World Vision Zambia identified a prematurely born child in Gwembe and MGen took him up and supported the child named ‘Madison’ until he completed his high school education. Over two decades later, MGen yet again rose to the occasion to partner with World Vision Zambia by supporting vulnerable communities.

World Vision in Zambia National Director John Hasse said the goal for World Vision Zambia is to give 1.5 million children access to good education and the donation made by MGen would go a long way in attaining this goal.

“World Vision is happy that Madison General Insurance has once again responded to our call for help in the communities in which we operate.  Early this year your organisation supported our ongoing efforts in the fight against COVID-19 by providing masks for vulnerable schools in Chongwe District,” said Mr Hasse.

“It is through such partnerships and collaboration, like the one we are witnessing today, that the work we do as World Vision Zambia will achieve the desired impact and improve the lives of vulnerable children and their families. This partnership gives us hope that we will be able to achieve our bold targets set out in our five-year strategy to contribute to the wellbeing of 1.5 million vulnerable girls and boys in Zambia by the end of 2025.”

Mphande Primary School established in 1995 requires rehabilitation of the existing classroom block to make it suitable and safe for learners. This includes fixing the dilapidated floors and walls; painting the classrooms, and replacement of broken window panes.
