There’s more to UNZA students than stone-throwing, says Deputy VCBy Thomas Mulenga on 20 Aug 2017
University of Zambia Deputy Vice Chancellor Professor Enala Mwase says students must strive to make a positive impact in society so that people can know that there is more to them that stone throwing.
Prof Mwase, who is She Inspires matron; an organisation formed and run by UNZA students, said this when she accompanied them to donate assorted items to underprivileged people in Lusaka’s Mazyopa compound.
“The few things that happen at the University that damage our image are what is known to the public but this activity which is very rare actually, people don’t know it, that’s why I would have really liked as much publicity so that people know that UNZA students are not only stone throwers, they also have a heart for the community,” said Prof Mwase.
She said such initiatives would help to portray the institution in a positive way.
The students donated items like mealie meal, cooking oil, soap and clothes, among others.
And She Inspires founder, Maggie Bukowa; a third year Media and Communication Studies student, said the organisation was compelled to assist people in the area after seeing their needs.
Bukowa said She Inspires will continue reaching out to the underprivileged in society and she since appealed to people who were interested to partner with her organisation to come on board.
She Inspires also focuses on fighting the rise in teenage pregnancies and promoting education for young women.
Meanwhile, the recipients thanked She Inspires for the gesture.
Mazyopa township Chairperson Frederick Sinyangwe thanked the students for choosing his area in their donation initiative.
He further appealed to She Inspires to conduct discussions with girls in the area on the importance of education saying there had been high numbers of drop outs due to teenage pregnancies.
