Blantyre Synod Education Department has committed to promote inclusive education among girls with disabilities as well as those coming from ultra-poor backgrounds in Mangochi District.
The synod’s education secretary Moses Kasitomu made the commitment when he took delivery of a donation of a Toyota Land Cruiser, a motorcycle, computers and office furniture for the synod’s Inclusive Education Project implemented in the district.
“These resources will help in our operations in the four-year project that runs up until July 2018. In our project, we are targeting 129 914 girls in the nine education zones in Mangochi District,” he said.
Kasitomu said money for the vehicle was sourced from Save the Children through the Royal Norwegian Embassy, adding that the synod seeks to sensitise communities to demand quality inclusive education for girls with disabilities and those from poor families through the project.
Synod moderator the Reverend Rabson Chimkwezule said the synod was fulfilling its goals to help government in providing social services to Malawians.
He said: “We are still focused on the missionaries’ main goals.” n
