Delta Corporation has constructed two classroom blocks with two fully furnished classrooms each and a 10-hole toilet block at Fairview Primary School in Matabeleland South Province.

The initiative, worth $60 000, is part of Delta's Schools Infrastructure Programme under which it works collaboratively with chosen communities to construct learning facilities at one or two primary schools a year.

Speaking at the handover, Delta Corporation's corporate affairs executive Patricia Murambinda underscored her company's commitment to investing in the country's education system.

"Delta has been involved in assisting schools in building standard classroom blocks as a means of enhancing capacity for less privileged primary schools for over fifteen years. Fairview... counts as one of the schools in Zimbabwe to benefit from this programme in the past 15 years," said Murambinda.

"Delta runs a vibrant education assistance programme which also includes school bursaries which commands close to $200 000 annually. To date 13 schools and over 630 students have benefited from the programme over the years amounting to $3 000 000 investment."
