Malawians have a reason to smile following government’s decision to revise wages for beneficiaries of the pro-poor Public Works Programme (PWP).

Government says it has revised wages for beneficiaries of PWP from K485 to K600 per day per person. This means a person will now earn MK7, 200 after working for twelve days.

Meanwhile, Ntcheu District Council has received a total allocation of K156, 530,944 to be used for Public Works Programmes which also include reforestation projects.

Chief Public Works Officer for Ntcheu, Clement Mtambo said 13,044 poor people across the district are going to get job opportunities through the program.

“Sixty per cent of this money is meant for wages for 13,044 beneficiaries and the rest is meant for procurement of tools, implements, inputs such as tree seedlings and project administration,” said Mtambo.

The objective of PWP is to provide poor and vulnerable households with sources of income, particularly during the lean period to improve their food accessibility besides creating community assets such as village access roads as well as management and conservation of natural resources.
