Airtel Malawi have given Mk 10 million to Malawi Under -21 national netball team (Junior queens) for the African Youth Netball Championship that set in Botswana this month.
This donation is more like a painkiller to Junior Queens as they were in financial difficulties which were likely to prevent them from participating in this tournament.
In an interview, Junior queens Coach Mary Waya has described the development as a corner stone for their success and she has promised to win the tournament.
“We are in good shape now for the Africa qualifying games. We have been in camp for two weeks and the girls have easily adapted to our expectations and hope they will deliver,” she said.
The Junior Queens left through Chileka international airport in Blantyre for Botswana on July 18.
