Malawi-Scotland partnership intensifies mentorship programmes for students

Malawi-Scotland Partnership has stressed the need to strengthen mentorship programmes in schools for Malawi to have a generation of students who are resilient to challenges and productive.

Acting Chief Executive Officer of Malawi Scotland Partnership Linda Dembo has said this during a girl mentorship programme which they organised for Adziwa Christian School at Kauma in Lilongwe.

Dembo says Malawi has experienced many shocks like cyclones, food shortage and outbreaks which have affected many girls in the country, the mentorship programme therefore seeks to encourage the youths to stay in school, focus and have a vision.

“We are hoping that other organizations emulate this so that we can reach out to more students especially in the rural areas,” Dembo said.

She has added that currently they are targeting both boys and girls in order to give both genders an opportunity and leave no one behind.

Through school partnerships the Malawi Scotland Partnership is also reaching out to Malawian students through its science project to encourage youths in STEM subjects.
