“Girl education remains a symbol of sustainable development because an educated girl child will be able to make informed decisions that will develop her country, which is why I appreciate the overwhelming support for this event as it will give me the courage to forge ahead with this program” Madam Mutharika pointed out.

“Women should learn to inspire one another to strive towards attaining leadership positions as well as engaging in entrepreneurship activities” Mutharika added.

The first lady also thrilled the audience as she stepped out dressed in a school uniform and urged the young girls to remain focused.
