Limbe Cathedral in the Archdiocese of Blantyre has moved in to support early childhood development education in a bid to give a chance especially the under-privileged children an opportunity to access it.
Parish Priest Fr Peter Kantembe said the Catholic Church has already established a centre at the church and another has just been opened soon at Muheko Village in T/A Somba.
Fr Kantembe said the church had a social responsibility to help the government in offering early childhood education to children at an early stage for them to become productive citizens in the country.
“In fact we have a Mary Meals branch at Tapani but further that at Muheko Village enclosure in T/A Somba which is very hard to reach place and there are a lot of kids who don’t have a privilege to access early childhood education,” Fr Kantembe said.
“We have a social responsibility in union with the government to reach out to every person regardless of their denomination because we are partners in development.”
He also said through a well wisher, who chose not to be identified, Limbe Cathedral managed to sponsor three caregivers for a two-week training in Early Childhood Care and Development conducted by Association of Early Childhood Association of Malawi from 9 to 21 in Blantyre.
He said the caregivers Agness Thomas and Emma Chitimbe would be able to offer services better following the training.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
