IIWD Project Coordinator for the Karonga youth friendly health services, Margret Jere disclosed that they were in full support of the training.

 “We are very happy that these teachers have successfully completed their ten day training and been awarded certificates.

She said they want to have full support of a girl child and that their human right be respected so that they are free from any form of violation.

Speaking Capital FM to after receiving her certificate, Prisca Chiutsi said through the skills and knowledge imparted unto her will increase her potential to encourage girls and boys to concentrate on their education and refrain from social malpractices that would ruin their life.

“I hope this will make us assist them to make good foundation for their lives and also enlighten them on how they can actually report cases of abuse they may go through,” she said.

    If you're still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you'll know which is right for you.
