First Lady Launches "Life Story" Booklet
First lady Monica Chakwera has launched a life story booklet and video documentary courtesy of Plan Malawi. The book aims at drawing inspiration from her life story.
Speaking during the launch in Lilongwe on Thursday, Chakwera said young women need to be exposed to role models, who can give them a push with their careers.
"The documentation has been made in a bid to motivate young women in rural areas especially those struggling with their education."
Education Minister Agnes Nyalonje says her ministry Intends to use the story to inspire both parents and girls in primary and secondary schools.
"This is a story from which we all draw special lessons in humility, focus, determination, resilience, and reliance on God. It is a story that connects the girl child to her dream," she said.
"It is a story that speaks of possibilities regardless of where one comes from or their economic status," she added.
The documentation has been made with aid from Plan Malawi, and its country director Phoebe Kasoga has reaffirmed the organization's commitment to ensuring that young girls are supported academically.
2500 copies of DVDs and booklets have since been released and are expected to be distributed in various schools across the country.
