MAM Hands Over Mufti Abbas Primary School to Government
In a bid towards advancing education and fostering unity, the Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM), on June 4, 2023, handed over Mufti Abbas Primary School to the Government of Malawi. The ceremony, held in Mangochi, was a remarkable milestone for the association and the local community.
In his remarks, Chairperson of the Muslim Association of Malawi His Eminence Sheikh Idrissah Muhammad emphasized the importance of Muslims involvement in the development of the education sector.
“There is great need to address shortage of school infrastructure in our community so as to intensify the fight against illiteracy among Muslims and the community at large,” he said.
He reiterated that it is his wish that Mufti Abbas Primary School becomes the most prestigious primary education institution in Mangochi.
With more than 2000 students and 30 dedicated teachers, Mufti Abbas Primary School has become a beacon of hope for education in the region within a short period of time.
It was also disclosed that plans to expand the school are already underway, demonstrating the association’s commitment to providing quality education to as many children as possible.
The construction of Mufti Abbas Primary School blocks drew praises from the education office of Mangochi district.
They recognized the school’s significance in easing the burden on other educational institutions, hence commending
the Muslim Association of Malawi for its commendable work.
The collaborative efforts of the association and government bring a positive impact on the lives of learners and the broader community.
Mufti Abbas Primary School exemplifies the power of unity and collaboration. It serves as a testimony of the unwavering commitment of the Muslim Association of Malawi to ensure equal educational opportunities for all children, irrespective of their backgrounds. By constructing schools in such areas, the association is actively contributing to the development and prosperity of these communities.
Education is not merely about providing knowledge and skills; it is also a catalyst for positive change and social transformation. With access to education, children gain tools to break the cycle of poverty, enabling them to contribute meaningfully to their respective societies.
MAM spokesperson Sheikh Dinala Chabulika also called upon all Muslims in Malawi to unite and continue their remarkable work in advancing education.
“Together, we can overcome challenges faced by our communities and build a brighter future for generations to come,” he said.
Chabulika further said Mufti Abbas Primary School stands tall as a testimony to the dedication and vision of MAM and its impact reverberates throughout the nation.
The construction of schools in many districts underscores their commitment to creating a more inclusive and prosperous society.
The story of Mufti Abbas Primary School serves as an inspiration for other organizations and individuals to recognize the power of education in transforming lives. It is a reminder that when communities come together, regardless of their backgrounds, they can achieve extraordinary feats and empower future generations.
“Malawi’s initiative to establish Mufti Abbas Primary School and other schools across the country represents remarkable strides towards bridging the education gap. Through their efforts, we are sowing the seeds of progress,
unity and hope, fostering a brighter future for Malawi,” said Chabulika.
