LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The country’s leading online higher learning institution Unicaf University has offered full postgraduate scholarships to six public secondary school teachers.

The offer is part of Unicaf University’s celebration of this year’s World Teachers Day which was held on October 25, 2022.

Under the theme, “Transformation of Education begins with Teachers‘, 2022 World Teachers Day attracted over 400 teachers from across Malawi that started with a ceremonial march from the Clock Tower in Blantyre to Mount Soche Hotel where the event took place.

Unicaf University welcomed the opportunity to participate in the World Teachers’ Day event by awarding teachers with scholarships.

The proud beneficiaries of a 100% Unicaf Postgraduate Scholarship including Vincent Mpoto, Loyola Jesuit Secondary School (Kasungu), Lydia Nkopoka Kalingo, Mulunguzi Secondary School (Zomba), Wiscot Waliki, Chilimba Community Day Secondary School (Blantyre), Hastings Skinner, Dzenje Community Day Secondary School (Mulanje), Lonnex W Mtafya, St. Ignatius of Loyola Secondary School (Chitipa) and Nthope W Nawanja, Likuni Boys Secondary School (Lilongwe).

After awarding World Teachers Day Scholarship to six teachers, Unicaf University Vice-Chancellor, Dr Robert Ridley says its an opportunity for beneficiaries to make use of online programmes and generous scholarship offers.

Dr. Ridley stated that teachers are valued because, “a good teacher not only transmits knowledge to pupils, but also gives them encouragement and a sense of self-worth.”

He added, “through these awards, Unicaf University hopes to assist the winning teachers to further their own education and to further their ability to develop and improve their schools and the education system in Malawi.” 

In her remarks, Deputy Minister of Education, Monica Chang’anamuno, praised the efforts of teachers who play a key role in addressing problems that befall the education sector, often in very difficult circumstances.

She also stressed the need to appreciate teachers saying they push the country forward in order to achieve its Malawi 2063 and SDG education goals, including to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”

Chang’anamuno therefore lauded Unicaf University’s gesture towards teachers welfare.
