Zomba City Council (ZCC) has appealed to organisations working in its jurisdiction to implement their projects in line with the city’s plans so that they are sustainable and effective.
The council’s director of administration, Mussa Mwale, who was the guest of honour, said this last week during the closing ceremony of a two-year project by the Empowering Girls Through Education and Health Activity (Aspire).
He commended Aspire for implementing an effective project that is also in line with the council’s strategic plan and by-laws.
“Aspire is a good example of an effective project that is in line with the council’s plans. It will be sustainable after the owners’ exit. This is what we want,” Mwale said.
In her remarks, Save the Children deputy chief of party Emily Maosa said the main goal of the project was for children to be well informed and make informed decisions.
At the end of the ceremony, the project awarded the best three schools that performed well in the project and St. Joseph Girls’ Primary School emerged winners, followed by Chiperoni Primary School while Mponda Primary School finished third. n
