    TUBEPOKA DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE HANDS OVER CHILD CARE CENTRE AND A BOREHOLE TO MWAMBENJE COMMUNITY

    As one way of implementing government efforts in early childhood development, a local Christian organization, Tubepoka Development Initiative (TDI) has handed over a community-based child care and borehole worth K18.2 million to the people of Mwambenje Village, Traditional Authority Mwaulambya in Chitipa District.

    Speaking in interview with the Executive Director for TDI Paul Ng’ambi said that the care centre has been handed to the communities as their property and that they should take good care of the centre as it is meant to help in the development of children in the area.

    “My appeal to the community is that they should take a good care of the facility, they should make sure that it serves to the purpose and should there be damages they should be repairing it” he said.

    Speaking in a separate interview with Chitipa Assistant Senior Welfare Officer, Joyce Luhana, representing the District Commissioner said that the development has come at the right time and will help children not to have difficulties once they enroll in primary school.

    “This is encouraging because when children attain ECD services they go to primary school and they don’t have problems, they are already clever and they do very well,” she said.

    Senior group village headman Mwenechinukha thanked Tubepoka Development initiative for the handover of the CBCC and Borehole in their Community.

    Mwambenje Living Waters Community Based Child Care Centre (CBCC) started operating in 2012 as a nursery school. The new CBCC has been constructed by TDI in collaboration with Living Waters Church in the area, and with financial support from Willow Creek Community Church of the United States of America (USA).

    A borehole has also been drilled within their care centre in order to provide clean water at the premises.
