A campaign to encourage more girls stay in school is currently under way in 13 districts across the country.

The campaign, Every Girl in School is aimed at supporting Malawi government goal to universal primary school education.

The initiative is also a continuation of World Food Program (WFP) supported school meals program.

748 schools are expected to benefit from the campaign; in which 22 schools are from three Traditional Authorities Ganya, Phambala and Masasa in Ntcheu district.

The targeted schools are where WFP provides meals under a centralised model.

Speaking to Capital FM, Senior Programs Manager for Creative Centre for Community Mobilization (CRECCOM) disclosed that parents and stakeholders in the community will be in forefront raising awareness about the campaign.

Naphitaly Benister stated that the idea is to give them an opportunity to be advocates for change by encouraging girl child stay in school in respective areas.

He further adds the campaign will also strive to break cultural barriers that are influencing girls to drop out of school in the targeted district.

“There are a lot of interventions the campaign will focus on during the period of implementation since what we want is to see more girls are not dropping out of school.

We want girls to continue with their education regardless of challenges they face hence working with communities to champion the initiative in respective societies,” explained Benister.

CRECCOM will implement Every Girl in School Campaign with financial assistance from the WFP at a cost of US$94,038.

And initial period of the campaign which started last month, is expected to end in December this year.
