Apart from an individual prize money of K100,000,each of the winners was required to choose a community development project of their choice worth K2 million, translating to K100 million.
Speaking during the handover ceremony in Lilongwe, Katunga said her choice of toilets was in response to sanitation and hygiene challenges her school faces.
“The school, like many in Malawi did not have good toilet infrastructure, and we girls were affected most by this challenge,” she said.
