Global Women Leadership Network in Malawi (GWLN), a non-governmental organisation (NGO), on Monday donated inclusive education equipment worth K650 000 to Talandira Community Based Care Centre (CBCC) at Lirangwe in Blantyre.
Speaking during the ceremony, GWLN representative Betty Moses said the donation sought to allow children to attend and participate in CBCC activities.
“The equipment will stimulate children bodies and improve social interactions. This is our first donation to CBCCs and we plan to assist other centres in future.
“We urge parents to take good care of equipment we have donated because these materials are there to improve the children’s lives,” she said.
Group village head Tepeka in Tradition Authority Lundu asked parents of children with disabilities to attend CBCC activities.
“This donation will develop children’s skills that can enable them enjoy maximum opportunities for an independent livelihood,” he said.
Kephar Goodson, a mother of a child with disabilities, said the donation will help her child learn how to sit and stand.
“In the past, I used to carry her on my back everywhere,” she said.
