In its quest to promote girl child education, Plan Malawi has come up with a booklet of the life of Madame Chakwera and a video documentary. The booklet among others is specially designed and customised for children.
According to Plan Malawi Country Director Phoebe Kasoga, the story of Madame Monica Chakwera is relatable to most girls in Malawi and also Africa as a whole due to various challenges that comprise the girl-child's access to education.
"Through thick and thin, her story is that which reinforces hope, determination, focus, dedication and it underscores the unlimited potential of the girl child," added Kasoga.
Also present at the event are ministers from various ministries including the Minister of Education Agnes Nyalonje and Mayor for Lilongwe city council Juliana Kaduya.
