In order to help the Tanzania Police Brass Band improve its operations, Vodacom Foundation Tanzania has made a donation consisting of three computers and internet connection to the Band as part of its contribution to the Police Force in the country.
The computers were handed over today to the Director of Entertainment for Tanzania Police Force who is also the head of the band, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Adelgot Haule, in a brief ceremony held at their Headquarters in Kilwa Road, Dar es Salaam.
The donation was made after the department had received training from Vodacom Tanzania on how to use computers in their daily operations with internet service to ensure that the band gains maximum benefit from the equipment.
“Every Tanzanian is aware of the Police Brass Band’s contribution to the country especially during various national events as they bring out the pride of our nation. It is important that they should have the latest equipment that will enable them store data and preserve quality for the generations to come,” said Salum Mwalim, Vodacom Tanzania’s Communications Manager.
The Vodacom Foundation has been working closely with the community and the Government in supporting various projects that benefit Tanzanians.
According to SSP, Adelgot Haule, Vodacom Foundation’s contribution is just but the beginning of the band’s effort to grow and reach the heights they have been aspiring to reach.
“Let me tell Vodacom Foundation that when we thank them for these devices it’s not that we look at what you have given us, but on the basis that it has helped us to transform our operations positively as well as our activities within the police force. You have been timely in meeting our technology requirements and this is a boost that we do not take for granted,” stated Haule.
He added that through the equipment from Vodacom Foundation, the Band now has the capacity to safely store its songs in a scientific way while members can now browse entertainment news via the internet, thereby increasing their overall awareness and knowledge of the arts and entertainment as well as the composition and preparation of instruments.
Vodacom Foundation has been the best example of how the company’s business efforts can be a key ally of a society’s social economic development in line with its main commercial activities.
