The career talk centred on pursuing a career path, education and finance, hard work and overcoming obstacles, etiquette and self-confidence.

During the career talk, FINCA made a donation to the school consisting of bags, notebooks, writing material and calculators.

FINCA Bwaila Branch Manager, Thandiwe Banda, expressed that this was part of FINCA’s initiatives to give back to the community as the company celebrates 25 years of providing responsible financial solutions in Malawi.

“We are excited to contribute to the welfare of these girls as they aspire to make a grounded foundation for a balanced and better future. Our aim was to send the message that a balanced world is possible and is within reach,” said Banda during her address to the students.

Head teacher for the Kabuthu CDSS Chizinga said: “The girl students here are in need of exposure and inspiration to see that it is possible to attain a better life and that education is the key. Your coming today reinforces this and gives encouragement to the girls and the gifts are timely as the girls prepare for the MSCE exams.”
