Players in Education Sector Assisting in Providing Quality Education
Education authorities in Phalombe say interventions by some players in the education sector have assisted in improving the provision of quality education in the district.
Director of education, sports and youth for Phalombe district council, Sonnex Likhaluwe has told Zodiak Online Wednesday, that some of the interventions like bursary schemes and teacher profession development have greatly assisted in keeping learners in school.
“Introduction of the Teacher Professional Development (TPD) through monthly cluster trainings in science subjects has greatly equipped teachers to teach science with specific knowledge,” said Likhaluwe.
Likhaluwe made the remarks when Save the Children through Apatseni Mwayi Atsikana Aphunzire (AMAA) project was winding up its activities in Phalombe.
He has since urged some partners to come in with support since the project has created gap.
Chief of Party for the Let Girls Learn, Apatseni Mwayi Atsikana APhunzire project, Leckson Ndalama, says the organization introduced incoming generating activities so that parents for beneficiaries can plan for future of their children once they start secondary education.
Ndalama added that the organization has been working collaboratively with education and social welfare departments so that when the project is winding up the needy learners can be incorporated in other government bursaries.
A five-year AMAA project targeted five districts of Mzimba, Phalombe, Chikwawa, Machinga and Balaka and has reached over 4,000 needy students with financial support from USAID.
