PIC: PSU members with the Dean during the launch
The Polytechnic Students Union (PSU) in collaboration with the Polytechnic Alumni Association have launched an SMS promotion competition, which aims at raising funds for the needy students.

According to the PSU president Japhet Nthala, a person needs to send a message ‘START’ or YAMBA to 2025 for both networks to stand a chance of winning the grand prize of a Nissan Tilda.

Speaking earlier, the Dean of Students, Luciano Ndalama observed that there is a great need to assist less privileged students who are not able to sustain themselves financially.

“The alternative which we have at this point in time is the Loan Board, however there is no guarantee that everyone who applies, gets it. This being the case, it leaves a lot of students with financial challenges,” Ndalama explained.

During the launch the guest of honor, who is also the President of the Alumni Association, Newton Kambala commended the PSU for coming up with this initiative to help the fellow students.

Kambala further encouraged graduates from the Polytechnic to join the association in order to be part of the programs that takes place at the college.

The PSU president urges students and the public to participate in the competition by sending as many messages as possible in order to increase the chances of winning. In the process, help raise funds for the needy students.

Meanwhile well-wishers having been coming forward with donations like clothes to give out to needy students.
