Bwaila Rotary Club Charity Golf Tournament, which took place at the Lilongwe Golf Golf Club (LGC) on Saturday, has raised K4 million.
The club’s presidentVijay Mittal thanked golfers and companies that helped towards the cause.
“The golf tournament was organised to raise funds for needy students in various schools. We have Tiphunzire Fund which we use to pay fees for needy students. There are deserving students out there who cannot realise their dreams because they cannot afford school fees. The idea is about helping deserving students achieve their dream, “ he said.
LGC captain Medson Roka said they were happy and honoured to partner Bwaila Rotary Club in the charity project.
“We all have responsibilities to help the less privileged in our communities. We believe everyone has a right to good education. We thank Bwaila Rotary Club for considering students from poor families,” he said.
