UNESCO REINTRODUCES CULTURAL GAMES IN SCHOOLS

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has launched a three-year project which seeks to safeguard nine traditional games and sports through formal and non-formal education in the country.

Acting Head of Malawi Commission for UNESCO, David Mulera, said schools in the country no longer play traditional games a development which he said does not promote culture.

According to Mulera, under the three-year project, the traditional games will be incorporated into the school curriculum to enable learners to know their culture and traditions.

Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Local Government, Unity and Culture, Elizabeth Gomani Chindevu, said the government will ensure that traditional games and sports are taken on board in the revised curriculum.

The nine games are Nsikwa, Fulaye, Ndado, Ntchuwa, Phada, Nguli, Kamgolosale, Kabeza/Nthonga and Mbalika.
