By NATION REPORTER

Standard Chartered has donated 30 fully fitted computers to Chibelo Primary School in Lusaka and facilitated financial Literacy sessions to over 250 pupils at the school. 

The donation is in line with the bank’s goal of promoting and empowering the next generation to learn, earn and grow.

As education is strongly linked to the progress of communities in this digital world, Standard Chartered Bank is cognizant of the need to help young students to be computer literate at an early age as this is key to building their technological skills.

Speaking at the official hand-over event, visiting Standard Chartered Bank, Africa & Middle East Chief Risk Officer, Ian Bryden thanked Chibelo Primary School for the warm reception and reiterated the bank’s commitment to investing in the communities in which it operates.  

“Thank you to Chibelo Primary School for the friendly welcome. It is our hope that the donated computers will bolster computer literacy among the students. As a bank, we have Future makers by Standard Chartered which is our global initiative to tackle inequality and promote greater economic inclusion for disadvantaged young people in our communities. We support young people through the Youth to work programme and run the Women In Tech Programme that supports female led businesses to incorporate technology in their businesses. In addition, our Goal programme supports young Zambian girls through sport.” Mr Bryden said.

Commenting on the donation, Chibelo Primary School Deputy Head, Catherine Chabwe thanked Standard Chartered for giving back to the community and highlighted that the donated computers will go a long way in promoting computer literacy among vulnerable students at the school.
