THE Lesotho Post Bank has donated 41 computers to 23 schools, for better record keeping and automation of other services yesterday.

Molefi Leqhaoe, the managing director of Lesotho Post Bank, said the bank has a role to bring about change in the lives of Basotho.

“We are aware that in this era computers are being used everywhere in everything and it is therefore imperative for our children to learn to use it at a tender age so that they can keep up with the rest of the world,” Leqhaoe said.

“We also know that education is no longer restricted to exercise books only but we have seen computers playing a huge role in the education system,” he said, stating that the 23 schools that will benefit are the ones from areas where the bank is operating.

He said the giving of computers is a result of the bank’s corporate social responsibility program where it identifies those who are in need and comes up with ways to help them, taking into consideration that education is important to every Mosotho.

“We saw it essential to share with you some of our equipment, with the public that continuously supports us,” Leqhaoe said.

Leqhaoe said sharing equipment with the public is only the first step of a long journey.

“We also want to help each other to spread the message about how the bank works , create an environment that even  our children know what expertise is needed at the bank so that those interested in pursuing those careers can someday work with the bank,” he said.

He emphasised that the Post Bank’s main aim is to decentralise services and serve Basotho even in arrears that other banks do not want to go to.

He showed that the computers will help the schools to have accurate data, automate some of their services, and help them with security information.

“We are going to ensure that these computers work  and do not end up dusty in storage rooms as we are aware that schools do not have resources to maintain them, so please let us know when they give you trouble so that we can send technicians to fix them,” Leqhaoe said.

One of the beneficiaries, a teacher at John Mount High School Thabo Nkhetše said they will ensure that the computers are used for the  development of the school and the children’s computer literacy.

“We will take care of these computers to ensure that even a lot of children will benefit from them,” Nkhetše said.
