TNM has donated K6 million towards St Patrick’s Day to be commemorated by the Irish Society.
The Irish Society in Malawi will commemorate the day on March 18 in Lilongwe with a fund-raising party.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Office of Career Guidance, a Malawian non-governmental organisation that supports young people through career guidance, counselling, role modelling and football.
Said TNM managing executive (Centre) Phyllis Manguluti: “TNM is proud to partner the Irish Society as it celebrates St Patrick’s Day with a noble cause in support of the youth of Malawi.
“As a Malawian company, TNM is an enabler of Malawian youth initiatives that help groom them into useful citizens. We are grateful to the Irish Society for considering the plight of Malawian youths.”
St Patrick’s Day honours the cardinal patron saint of Ireland, who died on March 17.
Saint Patrick was a Fifth Century Catholic missionary, whose name is carried across by Catholic institutions around the world, including Malawi.
The Irish celebrate the day with a feast and dress carnival featuring flamboyant green colours. n
