World Vision Malawi (WVM) programmes manager for Zomba Ndamyo Ngosi says adequate teaching and learning materials are crucial in the development of education in the country.
Ngosi made the observation on Thursday at Chingale in the district when her organisation distributed chalk boards, chalk and chalk board rulers, pencils, notebooks, pens and other extracurricular resources such as balls to 23 schools that the organisation supports in the district.
She said the teaching and learning materials in schools would help children in the remotest areas have access to quality education.
Ngosi advised the schools to take care of the materials they received.
“We urge school administrations, community leaders, parents as well as the learners to protect these resources from theft and damages if they (resources) are to meet their intended purposes,” she said.
Primary school education adviser (PEA) for Mtungulutsi education zone Hendricks Namauti urged the recipient schools to make full use of the materials if ignorance is to be uprooted in the area. n
