A call has gone to girls in the country to work hard in school if they are to realise their intended goals.
Director for Little Dresses for Africa (LDFA) Stella Mchawa said this at Lumbadzi Primary School in Lilongwe where the organisation in partnership with Restored Hope for Better Community (RHOBEC) donated assorted items including sanitary products.
According to Mchawa, the gesture is meant to motivate the girls to strive for success through hard work during their studies.
“You need to be determined towards achieving your goals and also not forgetting having role models.
Please abstain from immoral behaviours such as sexual activities. Abstinence begins with you. Never regret in future when things get sour,” Mchawa said.
In his remarks, coordinator for RHOBEC Gaddafi Mposa encouraged the girls to work hard in class, a thing which he said will make them to be self reliant and good leaders in the future.
Whilst expressing gratitude for the donation, the School’s headmistress Chipiliro Chilopa called upon other stakeholders to emulate the gesture.
She said: “This donation is timely, and it’s our appeal to other like minded organisations borrow a leaf from the two organisations by promoting and supporting girl child rights and education respectively.”
So far, LDFA in partnership with RHOBEC has visited four primary schools in Lilongwe and Dowa Districts with the outreach programme where they have been donating dresses, under wears and washable sanitary pads aiming at lessening challenges for girls to avoid missing classes during their menstruation period.
