Save the Children to 100 days of action

Date:

Save the Children Malawi has launched 100 days of action as one way of bringing in the children to school as Covid-19 has hit badly in the country.

Speaking during the  launch of the campaign  the Director of Operations at Save the children  Malawi Frank Mwafuliwa said the organization  thought of coming with the campaign  Which will run from 1st June to 8th  September this year because they  want to bring children back to school.

“Alot of children are not going back to school after covid-19  because most  of them are getting married early and  this is why we have introduced this action so that parents  should send their children to school said” Mwafulira

Mwafulira further  asked the government to invest  more in education as this year’s  budget in education sector has been reduced.

Yewo Muyawyo a student from Ngwenya 1 primary  School who represented  her fellow students ask Government not to give them  long covid-19 holidays because most of the children are getting married early and they are involving themselves  in drug and substance  abuse which is affecting them, leading to School drop-out.

She also ask the government to build more class rooms to accommodate more learners and to provide face mask, buckets and soap in Schools as one way of fighting against Covid-19.
