Speaking at the signing ceremony, ambassador Gerrman applauded Malawi government’s decision to implement reforms in the education sector.
“I commend the national education standards, rolling out a new secondary school curriculum and development of the education sector implementation,” Gerrman said.
Minister of finance thanked the EU for the support and cautioned any mismanagement of funds by those that will be entrusted to manage the project.
“Government will not entertain any misuse of the project resources,” said Gondwe.
Through the project, 21 community day secondary schools will be rehabilitated and expanded with more classrooms, libraries and science materials, teachers houses and hostels.
