In an interview with YFM online MLW’s Communications and Policy Coordinator Pauline Hellen Mlogeni, said the project is progressing very well and that they will soon be holding career guidance talks as well as premiering a film by Dr. Kondwani Jambo, one of the scientists in the country.
“Our aim is to encourage pupils and students to take up science careers especially bio medical science.We are pleased with the strides which the project has made so far and currently working in 22 schools in the South East, South West as well as the Shire Highlands education divisions.”
“This is a one year project and we are currently focusing on the career guidance aspect so we will ensure that we engage the schools to find out what hindrances are impacting on the pupils and students to science,”she said.
