The Rotary Club of Limbe, led by District Governor (DG) of 9210 in Zambia, Larry Mapani, on Saturday visited some of the 100 primary schools they are renovating in Chiradzulu to appreciate progress.
The envoy also visited a school feeding centre at Mpemba in Blantyre to find out how the programme is being implemented and how they can improve it.
In an interview, Mapani said he was impressed with the work being carried out and reiterated his commitment to injecting more money towards the initiatives.
“We are quite impressed with the progress of the work. As you can see, at least 92 classes have been painted and renovated.
“This is good to both the learners and teachers as they will live in a conducive environment, thereby triggering quality education,” he said.
Mapani said they want to contribute to quality education, particularly for rural people.
“We value and nurture education because we know that it is through education that people can get out of poverty,” he said.
Mapani said after face-lifting the classroom dubbed Happy Classrooms, the rotary club will embark on orienting teachers on how to utilise the resources on the wall to enhance teaching.
In his remarks, Rotary Club of Limbe president Mohamed Tayub said the project is designed to improve the learning environment and health and educational outcomes of children.
He cited the school feeding programme as one the initiatives which has increased school enrolment. n
