Proceeds from this year’s NBS Bank Charity shield will go towards supporting girl child education initiatives.

The revelation was made on Wednesday at the official contract signing between the bank and the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) ahead of the event’s kick off on March 30.

NBS Bank has doubled the package to K40 million from last year’s K20 million, an amount which the bank’s deputy chief executive officer Temwani Simwaka believes will be a critical contribution in girl child education development.

“We believe that it is our responsibility to take part in providing solutions for some of the else of the community. Last year it was very touching. I went to see the excitement on the faces of the people who got those homes and I do look forward to the excitement of the girls again this year after the competition of the competition and then after we have put up the infrastructure,” Simwaka explained.

She asserted the bank’s commitment to supporting its customers through various corporate social responsibility initiatives.

While acknowledging the gesture by the finance institution in supporting the top tier league curtain raiser, FAM general secretary Alfred said: “We are very excited that NBS Bank has taken us to another level by doubling the package and signing a new three-year deal with us.”

He stressed that the FA partnership with NBS Bank means they will be able to reach out to the needy communities with assorted support.

This year’s Charity Shield match will see the 2023 quadruple winners FCB Nyasa Big Bullets face Super League runners up Silver Strikers at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe later this month.
