Bwaila Media Club, in conjunction with Plan International Malawi, on Saturday hosted a journalism career talk aimed at inspiring the girl child to work hard in school.
The activity was held at Bzyanzi Community Day Secondary School (CDSS) in Dowa and involved girls from the school while others came from Mpingu CDSS in Lilongwe.
Media Institute for Southern Africa (Misa) Malawi Chapter chairperson Theresa Ndanga, who was the key speaker, said she was pleased to motivate girls through her life story.
“I should congratulate BMC and Plan for coming up with something big today for our girls. It is our responsibility to ensure that we give them a platform for motivation,” she said.
BMC treasurer general Augustine Mulomole said they were satisfied with the outcome of the activity because students asked countless questions on how best to succeed in life.
Plan International communications and campaigns manager Rodgers Siula said they were pleased to participate in the event.
“We are working with partners such as BMC to break stereotypes that girls cannot do better in life,” he said.
The career talk was part of preparations for BMC Annual General meeting slated for March 27 and 28.
