NENO-(MaraviPost)—Performance of Chilimbondo Primary School pupils is expected to improve following the donation of solar lamps by Actionaid Malawi.
Project Coordinator for Neno Local Rights Programme, Landani Masingati said the lamps would help the pupils with their studies as well as encourage them and others in education.
He said most of the times, learners in remote areas are at a disadvantage because they are limited in studying at night because of lack of light sources as compared to their counterparts in urban settings hence low performance at national examinations.
“The donation is our commitment towards improving the outcomes for the girl child. We have seen that performance of the pupils in remote areas is very low as compared to those in the urban as a result Actionaid took an initiative to enhance performance,” Masingati said.
Group Village Headman Chakhumbira commended the organisation for their notable contribution towards improving education in the district especially his area where Actionaid has constructed school blocks, teacher’s houses and a community day secondary school.
Actionaid has been running a 14 year program which runs up to 2018 in Traditional Authority Dambe which is most deprived of social economic development in the district with its topography being the number one factor
