Mwanza District Council has chosen Association of Progressive Women (APW) as the best non-governmental organisation (NGO) in the district following its outstanding track record in the implementation of projects.
The council’s deputy chairperson Godfrey Zamaheya applauded APW for its achievement and asked the NGO not to relax but continue doing the job they had been doing in the district.
He said: “APW is working with Save the Children International to implement projects of quality learning and accountability and quality learning environment with rural communities.
“After going through what they achieved during the review and assessment meeting, we all agreed that it was the only NGO that implemented at least 90 percent of their planned projects.”
Senior Chief Nthache appealed to APW to continue with their projects and assured them of his continued support in his area and the district as a whole.
“We believe with APW initiatives, illiteracy level will be minimised by the end of the four-year project in 2018,” he said.
APW executive director Noel Msiska said they implemented the project with funding from Norway through the Malawi government.
“We also want to applaud government for working with us whenever we ask them and government has been responsive to the issues brought before it,” he said. n
