The Volunteers Service Overseas Organisation has donated exercise books and iPads to Ipyana full primary school in Karonga district.

This is in a quest to improve reading and writing skills among school going children.

Through the Unlocking Talent Project, the project seeks to enable youths in the country to learn mathematics, computing  and English so that they are able to grasp Information Communication Technology (ICT) quickly thereby improving quality of education in the country.

 According to Education Specialist for the VSO Tonas Kalumika said, “Pupils can adopt this system quickly because they are still young and that is why the organisation is targeting learners in standard one, two and three, so that when they get into standard 4 they are able to read and write through the use of modern technology.”

The specialist went on adding that they initiated the project to unlock the hidden talents among learners while on the other hand improving the quality of education.

He further told Capital FM that the project is also in support of the ministry of education in its national reading program as it also aims at achieving the same.

In his words, Karonga district education manager, Scorch Kondowe the support has come at a time when schools recently reopened and they were in need of support to procure teaching and learning materials.

 “The project intends to support the beginners in schools particularly in standard 1 with skills where they can develop writing and reading skills at their own pace and what we have noticed is that in ten schools where this project is being implemented has generated an interest among learners to enroll into schools and gains among those that are participating in it,” said Kondowe.

The project is being supported by the VSO in partnership with One Billion London based charity organisation together with Malawi’s ministry of education science and technology.

With financial support from Royal Norwegian Embassy and the Scottish government, it is targeting ten public full primary schools across Karonga district.

    Marys small rant made sense to me, Jerry you really should respect her opinion and then maybe the respect will be returned to you. We are all from different backgrounds and circumstances.

    I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    Wonderful website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that
    cover the same topics discussed here? I'd really like to be a part of group where I
    can get opinions from other experienced individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Appreciate it!

    carried out in the GSA Captcha Breaker review post.
