KILAKALA and Victory secondary schools in Morogoro and Arusha respectively have been given $20,000 (53m/-) to boost academic development projects after performing well in creativity.

In the support given by NOS Vies en Partage Foundation (NVeP) in collaboration with Barrick Gold Corporation, each school has been given $10,000.

The support is provided by NVeP, which was established by Barrick Gold President and CEO Mark Bristow to support special groups like women, children and others who are benefitting less from Africa’s economic growth.

Every quarter of the year, the NVeP provides productive aid to benefit various communities in need in Africa. More than 20 non-governmental organizations benefit from the aid and it has already brought positive changes in society especially in the education and health sectors, directly bringing positive changes to women and children.

Mary Lugina, Kilakala Secondary School Headmistress thanked the miner for the support and explained that it will help to improve projects at the school and increase the performance for students who are facing various challenges.

Ruth Muruve, a representative of the Arusha-based Victory Secondary School was grateful for the support, saying it will help to achieve career development programmes for students who study at the school, especially those who come from less fortunate families and those who are living in challenging environments.

Handing over the donation in Dar es Salaam yesterday, Barrick Gold Tanzania Country Manager Melkiory Ngido congratulated the schools for getting the support in this phase.

He said that the NVeP will continue to support non-governmental organizations and institutions that provide services to the community in line with the goals of bringing about positive changes in society.

“We’re proud to see that the funds provided by Barrick Gold in collaboration with NVeP are helping to bring changes in society and we believe that the beneficiaries of this support today will use these funds for the intended purpose,” said Ngido.
