Students perfoming ingoma dance
Bunda-Catholic Students Organization (Bunda-CSO) organized a fund-raising cultural night event at Bunda campus recently.

The event, which is conducted annually, is a cerebration and promotion of indigenous culture in gospel ream, while raising funds to support various Bunda-CSO projects including charity.

Speaking at the event, Guest of Honour, Minister of Information and Technology, Hon. Nicholas Dausi, hailed the Bunda-CSO for their charity initiatives, saying this was within the enshrined christian values which teach followers to be endowed with a spirit of giving and helping the vulnerable.

“Catholic jurisdiction, demands compliance with teachings of the church, and that is helping others. Where there are the less privileged and less fortunate people, it is where you can see the face of Jesus Christ,” said the Minister.

Furthermore, he commended the students for promoting culture and urged the fellow youth to emulate them.

“As Malawians, we must be proud of our cultural heritage. A country without culture is a dead nation,” said Hon. Dausi.

In his remarks, LUANAR Vice Chancellor, Professor Emmanuel Kaunda, applauded the catholic students, saying they are in line with the University’s motto.

“Bunda catholic students are at par with the University’s motto as they have displayed innovativeness at its highest level. They have come up with an initiative not just to put money in their pockets, but to help others who are under privileged,” said Professor Kaunda.

He further said the University is proud to have such innovative students with high dignity and integrity who can give, share, and keep culture at the same time.
Bunda-CSO, an affiliate of a charity organization, Saint Egidio, aims at increasing its scholarship beneficiaries, as it believes that no one is too poor to give.
