“Education is one of the important sectors for the socio-economic development of this country and the Foundation has been assisting this sector through various initiatives and sponsorships. We are delighted to partner with Monte Christo Primary School because it allows us, as a corporate to bring resources that enhance the school’s ability to provide quality education, thereby enabling learners to have experiences they otherwise would not receive,” he said.

The Principal at Monte Christo Primary, Elizabeth Murangi indicated that the donation has made it possible for teachers to distribute teaching and learning material in good time. She further thanked FNB on behalf of the school for the generous support.
