Sitting on the dusty floor and roasted on direct heat from the sun, waiting for minister of gender, social welfare and community development for hours on empty stomachs are some of the bitter memories that Malawian children have for 2023 day of the African child commemoration.
Education authorities in Neno district say a total of 2, 125 children have dropped out of school this year due to among other things child labour and neglect, discrimination based on physical challenges, forced marriages and poor school facilities.
The Day of African Child has been commemorated in Mulanje on September 24, 2021, with a call for joint collaborations in exploring and addressing root causes of violence against children.
