Castel Malawi has made a donation of MK500 000 to support the Sports Writers Association of Malawi’s Annual General Meeting. SWAM membership comprises of sports journalists from different media institutions in Malawi from all parts of country. In supporting SWAM, Castel Malawi supports good reporting within the sportsfield.
“We see SWAM as our partners and this is a clear manifestation of that partnership. As a good corporate citizen, we would like to help government in developing sports in this country and this is one way that Castel Malawi can contribute to development of sports in Malawi,” said Chirwa.
SWAM Executive Member, Frank Kandu, who accompanied the association’s General Secretary Aston Gondwe at the function, said it was pleasing to see Castel Malawi becoming the first company to honour SWAM’s proposal for funding of the AGM. “It is our hope that this wonderful gesture by Castel Malawi will open further doors for assistance towards our AGM. Our budget is MK 4.5 Million. We are asking the corporate world to come to our aid because sport is like any other business and it takes a sports reporter to write about it while at the same time promoting different brands by different companies,” said Kandu.
