In Malimbwe, MEJN used data to identify the lack of books in the school, and raised this issue with the Supplies Unit.
"We are extremely excited to have had a helping hand in relaying the information about a huge challenge that has been standing in the way of access to quality education for four solid years," said Dalitso Kubalasa, Executive Director of MEJN. "As a civil society organization, we will strive to identify gaps in public service delivery and continue to help Government deliver quality services to citizens, such as these kids at Malimbwe," he said.
On this occasion ActionAid and MEJN arranged for IMF officials to visit a primary school (with 5 teachers for 694 pupils), a health clinic (with no doctor), and a women's community radio station.
Closer links with MEJN in Malawi again constitute an exception.
