CUT boost ahead of World Cup

Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT), the country’s sole representatives at the Students In Free Enterprise World Cup in Malaysia received a major boost ahead of the resumption of the international universities tournament after Zimbabwe Cricket announced a partnership with the institution.

ZC officials said the initiative was part of its social responsibility programme.

“Zimbabwe Cricket has a corporate social responsibility. We hope that by providing the institution with our expertise and knowledge this will further amplify the work they are doing. We will soon be a partner in their causes and join the other corporates and alumni organisations that assist in any way they can,” Titus Zvomuya, ZC Head of Game Development and Training, said at a function in Harare.

“The team gave us a moving presentation which showed the amount of work that these students had put into the community. One thing that stuck out was that they are passionate about community development,” he added on the organisation’s official website.

CUT, which has 33 members in Malaysia, are representing Zimbabwe at the SIFE World Cup for the second time in as many years having participated at the previous edition in Los Angeles, United States last year.

The three-day tournament resumes in Malaysia tomorrow (Monday).

A total of 40 universities are participating at the international cricket event.

The 2011 SIFE World Cup will provide a showcase of the impact that SIFE teams are achieving around the world and will bring together an international network of more than 1 500 student, academic and business leaders.
