Nevers Mumba Commends Multi-Choice Zambia

LUSAKA, Apr. 29 - Vive-President Nevers Mumba has commended Multi-Choice Zambia for its deliberate policy to re-invest in Zambian communities through many corporate social programmes.

Dr Mumba said Multi-Choice Zambia since its establishment in the country in 1996 had continued to re-invest in communities in many forms.

He said this in Lusaka when he launched the $90,000 Multi-Choice Zambia school project meant to promote the teaching methods adopted across the country at Pamodzi Hotel on Wednesday night.

Dr Mumba said the organisation had among others partnered with Habitat for Humanity in the Kenneth Kaunda project as well as supporting the Bauleni Street Kids and Kabwata Orphanage projects.

He said it was gratifying therefore to note that the organisation had continued its march towards moulding of young minds through the use of world class educational programmes.

The channel content on an exclusive educational bouquet would be supplied to the targeted 300 schools free of charge.

He said it was interesting to note that the programming content would cover the core and essential disciplines of Mathematics, History, Biology, English and Science.

"I have heard that a positive feedback has been derived from five Lusaka based secondary schools, Libala, Roma Girls, Arakan boys, Chongwe boys and Matero through a pilot trial run.

"This is indeed an excellent indicator of the relevance and anticipated success of this project," Dr Mumba said.

He stressed that the project was a truly broad-based initiative since it hinged on the fact that the DSTV signal was accessible in literally every part of Zambia.

Dr Mumba also said the effort fitted well into Government's programme to improve Information Communication Technology (ICT) in schools across Zambia.

Education Minister Andrew Mulenga expressed hope that the project would be restricted to educational nature and content only.

The minister was confident however, that technology gaps in schools would now be eliminated.

Former Multi-Choice general manager Matthew Higgins said the educational bouquet comprised Animal Planet Channel, the National Geographical Channel, Discovery as well as the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) new channel.
