Stakeholder call on partners aid for students

Vice President of Ladies in Tertiary Education (LAITE) Mzuzu University (Mzuni) Chapter, Dzuwalathu Kaitano, has emphasised the importance of providing students with necessary resources and knowledge for their academic, mental, and physical well-being.

She made the remarks on Friday in Mzuzu during a multifaceted visit to Msiki Community Day Secondary School (CDSS) aimed at academic success, mental well-being, and menstrual hygiene awareness.

In an interview, Kaitano disclosed that the club has donated pens and notebooks to the boys and girls of Msiki CDSS to support their educational journey.

“These supplies not only facilitate learning but also alleviate financial burdens, ensuring that all students have equal opportunities to excel in their studies,” she added.

Kaitano further told Malawi News Agency that the club also conducted a menstrual hygiene session with the girls of the school the same day, where reusable menstrual pads were distributed in honour of Menstrual Hygiene Month.

“By providing sustainable menstrual hygiene solutions, we are not only promoting health but also removing barriers to education, ensuring that girls can attend school confidently and without interruption during menstruation,” she emphasised.

In a separate interview, LAITE Executive Director Esther Bonyonga reaffirmed that her organisation is committed to continuing fostering a supportive and inclusive environment where all students can reach their full potential.

She has since urged other organisations to consider supporting schools and students in need, emphasising the positive impact of such contributions.

LAITE is a non-governmental organisation that promotes girls and women to become responsible citizens in the society.
