NB Takes Go Green Campaign to Chiradzulu CDSS
National Bank of Malawi Customs Road Branch in Blantyre has planted 3, 000 trees at Chiradzulu Community Day Secondary School in advancing their Go Green Campaign.
The Branch’s Service Center Manager, Leonard Siula, says they initiated the Campaign after realizing how the country is suffering from harsh effects of climate change.
Siula stressed that they will be inspecting the trees to make sure that they survive.
“After discovering that the country is being faced with natural disasters which are culminating from wanton cutting down of trees, we embarked on the Campaign.
“Members of staff produce seedlings and the bank buys them to be distributed in various location areas throughout Malawi.
“As the bank, we deal with people. When people are able to do business, they come to National Bank and deposit their money. That’s why the management thought it wise to partner with the community to plant as many trees as possible to ensure that natural disasters are not there,” he said.
Head teacher of the school, Humphery Mathewe, said the school will work with traditional leaders surrounding the school to sensitize their subjects to take care of the trees.
“At the same time, as a school, we are going to tighten security to ensure survival of the trees. We are very grateful to National Bank for establishing the woodlot,” he said.
