Good News Revival Centre has described education as a potent tool to stimulate innovativeness, creativity and economic growth.
Good News Revival Centre leader Nedson Milanzi said this at a pre Christmas party his church organised for 123 children drawn from Gangala, Mtopwa and Namiyango in Bangwe, Blantyre.
He said Malawi can experience unprecedented economic growth if it heavily invests in education.
“Upon this realisation, Good News Revival Centre has, for so many years, been paying school fees and providing school materials to needy children.
“Malawi needs creativity to create employment and grow economically. But we need education to stimulate innovativeness in our children,” said Milanzi.
He said research shows a strong link between poverty and low education levels.
The centre supports 250 primary and secondary school students.
“We provide fees, uniforms, exercise books and other materials to needy students in Bangwe,” said Milanzi.
The centre threw the party to cheer children whose parents are blind in the area.
“Children whose parents are blind are often forgotten. Most people support orphans forgetting the plight of children whose parents are blind, hence our effort to cheer them up during this festive season,” said Milanzi.
One of the beneficiaries of Good News education bursary, Manes Wilson, thanked the centre for the party. n
