Malawi Youth Dream (MYD), a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) has said it will be in the forefront in the promotion of quality education among the youth in the country.
The pledge was made by the Organization’s Project Coordinator, Ishmael Amadu on Tuesday this week at Miwame Primary School in the area of Traditional Authority (T/A) Namavi in Mangochi when he was donating teaching and learning materials at the school and school uniforms for some needy pupils.
“School is a back-borne of socio-economic development for every household, community and the nation. Therefore, helping children to attain education could be the hub of unlocking wealth,” said Amadu.
He added: “Malawi Youth Dream was formed to help young children who are in acute poverty but are willing to go to school to continue with their education so that they become responsible citizens.”
Speaking when receiving the items, Headmaster of the school, William Mputa commended MYD for the support, saying it came at a time when the school was experiencing shortage of teaching and learning materials.
One of the beneficiaries of school uniform, Patuma Lyson hailed the Organization for coming to her aid, saying the school uniform gave her impetus to working hard.
With support from Gilbert Ball, Pro Direct, FA England, Kent Country and UK, Amadu stressed to roll out bursaries in all the schools in the district and other districts in order to help pupils to get educated and to complement government’s effort of brining quality education to the Malawian nation.
Some of the materials donated were: exercise books, pens, pencils, erasers, school uniforms, rulers among others.
