Deputy Director School Health and Nutrition, Virginia Kachigunda made the request Thursday after sampling a home schooling instruction programme near Mitondo Primary School in the area of Traditional Authority (TA) Chitekwere in Lilongwe.

She said even schools are opening next week classes would be conducted in shifts as part of the Covid-19 preventive measures.

“I would like to encourage the continuation of the programme at home level. Communities should be encouraged to use their availability resources within their home to keep their children busy when they are at home as a result of shifts,” Kachigunda explained.

She said WVM should strengthen such structures to many communities so that children should not miss out on their educational needs.

The Deputy Director said home learning through radio and other platforms remains relevant in this new norm.
A Caregiver, Kaitoni Akibu thanked WVM for providing capacity building among community members to help their children to continue reading and writing during the Covid-19 school break.

He said the programme has helped the children to have a feel of school although in a different learning environment.

“I would like to appeal that such visits within our communities should continue and we need to be access openly. We need to help our children with their education and this is why we are using locally made materials as a form of giving instructions to them,” Akibu added.

A Standard 4 learner, Linley Nefitalie said the programme has helped them not to forget what they were learning in school before the outbreak of Covid-19.

“We have greatly improved in our reading and writing now. Once schools will open, we will do better than before,” she assured.

WVM Education Coordinator, Fredrick Chigwa said the engagement of parents and guardians in the programme has helped a lot that efforts being made were tremendous.

He noted that children have been kept busy during the Covid-19 school break and that chances of them doing well in school would be high.

Senior Group Village Headman Chitekwere thanked WVM for their tireless effort in providing several developmental interventions in their area.
He said the education sector remains critical to the development of their area as they continue supporting them with a number of programmes including the home schooling instruction.

WVM Area Programmes for Nkhoma and Chilenje have managed to reach out to 15 schools in two zones, mapped up 400 House Holds (HHs), oriented 30 teachers, and trained 520 parents who are supporting 11,252 learners of which 1,750 are registered children.
