Malawi Youth Dream (MYD), a Non- Governmental Organization (NGO) has said it will support youths in the county in order to get quality education.
The pledge was made by MYD’s Executive Director, Lewis Kamundi recently at Mtuwa Primary School in the area of Traditional Authority (T/A) Chowe in Mangochi when he visited some of the pupils the organization is helping.
The organization is assisting a 14-year-old Cassim Msusa who is in standard 5 and her sister Lima who is at standard 4.
Kamundi said that his organization started helping the two after seeing that their parents could not afford to support them.
“MYD was formed to help needy pupils. The plight of Cassim and his sister touched us to the extent that we went to approach their single parent mother and indicated our support towards them,” he said.
“We were also touched with the mother’s plight and we straight away started aiding them. We built them a house and we gave her a capital and as of now she is doing business, all to make sure that Cassim and
his sister are well taken care of,” added Kamundi.
He said MYD values education.
“School is a back-bone of socio-economic development for every household, community and the nation. Therefore, helping children to attain education could be the hub of unlocking wealth,” noted Kamundi.
With support from Gilbert Balls, Pro Direct, FA England, Kent Country and UK, he boasts of rolling out bursaries in all the schools in the district in order to help pupils get educated and to complement government’s effort of bringing quality education to the Malawian nation.
