Dar es Salaam. In efforts to empower communities and the youth in Tanzania to ensure quality education in secondary schools, UBA Tanzania - through UBA Foundation – has donated Literature textbooks worth TZS 2,800,000 to Dar es Salaam’s Rising Star Secondary Schools.

Director for Rising Star Secondary School, Mrs Fransisca Matay received the donation on behalf of the school management at the weekend.

The bank was represented by its Head of Digital Banking, Mr Asupya Nalingigwa.

He said the bank was keen to ensuring the growth of a reading culture among Africa’s youths irrespective of their backgrounds or nature.

He also urged students to study hard to improve and sharpen their skills, insisting that reading it was through reading that they (students) would tweak their knowledge of the world surrounding them and thus be able to grab various opportunities.

In her remarks, the school’s head teacher, Mrs Leticia Pius Madenge, said the UBA donation had come at a time when the school was facing an acute shortage of various textbooks.

This, she said, was affecting the academic performance.

“I take this opportunity to promise that we will take proper care of these books for the advantage of us and the coming generation,” she said.

UBA Tanzania has been supporting Tanzania’s education sector for a long time and it was basing on that background that the Bank was recognized by Tanzania Education Authority in 2018 as one of the country’s key institutions in extension of support for learning.

UBA Foundation - through its Read Africa Initiative - was invested in the African youth to promote learning and a reading culture by donating various literature books to schools in Africa.

To achieve its goal, it has been working with various institutions and governments.
