TDI constructs K18.5m CBCC and water point facility

By Bishop Witmos:

Tubepoka Development Initiative (TDI) in Chitipa has constructed a Community Based Child Care (CBCC) center and provided a water point facility worthy K18.2 million at Mwambenje Village in the area of Traditional Authority (TA) Mwaulambya.

During the handover ceremony of the facilities on Tuesday, Executive Director for TDI, Paul Ng’ambi said the initiative aims at complementing government efforts in the promoting early childhood development.

“We decided to construct the facilities which are catalysts for early childhood development following a request by community members of the area,” he said.

Ng’ambi added the facilities have been constructed in corroboration with the Living Waters Church, with financial support from the Willow Creek Church of the United States of America (USA).

“My appeal to the community members is that they should take care of the facilities in for them to last long and serve the intended purpose,” he said.

District Social Welfare Officer for Chitipa, Joyce Luhana said the initiative has taken place at a right time when the district is in short supply of infrastructure for early childhood education.

Group Village Head Mwenechinunkha commended TDI for the facilities, saying they would go a long way in motivating pupils in the area to be going to CBCC to build their education foundation at tender age.

“A lot of children in my area were failing to acquire early childhood education due to lack of a CBCC and that is water under the bridge as we now have one,” he said.
