Centre for Social Concern executive director James Ngahy on Thursday challenged workers to value their work if they are to progress professionally and contribute to national development.
Speaking during the commemoration of the International Labour Day which falls on May 1 at the centre, he observed that some people do not value their jobs after getting employed.
Ngahy said: “Work is dignity, if you value your work, then you are destined to do well because you are personally inspired. When you do not value your work, you report late for duties, you are lazy and cannot progress professionally.
“This is why we are remaining at the low level of development in Africa because we are so dependent, we are not really creative and that spirit should be curtailed if we are to make significant progress”.
Lilongwe Archdiocese of the Catholic Church pastoral coordinator Innocent Mtapaonga challenged workers to adhere to ethical standards and give out their best to leave a mark and improve their skills.
CfSC is a Christian non-profit making development organisation under the Missionaries of Africa programme of the Catholic Church.
