At least 20 people most of whom teachers have been awarded certificates of attendance after successfully completing a ten-day training workshop.

The training was meant to impart them with knowledge on how they can provide youth friendly services to complement those that are already being provided in Malawi's Karonga district.

According to the district’s Youth Friendly Health Service Coordinator, Davis Chelewani they targeted teachers after noting that there is a link between the Institute for Integrated Women and Development (IIWD) and teachers.

And it was also noted teachers spend most of their time with young people so they can easily relate with them and discuss with them health issues that matter to them in a friendly manner.

“Now that we have successfully trained them through this ten day training period, we expect a great change in health service delivery among the youth,” Chelewani added.

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.

They will benefit both IIWD and St. Mary’s girl’s primary school such that they will be able to work in harmony to assist young girls to complete their education and avoid indulging themselves into immoral behaviour that can hinder their education,” Jere said.

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.
