Machinga-(MaraviPost)-Teachers in all schools across the country have been asked to
put in place strong measures to protect human rights of students with albinism.
The call was made on Tuesday, when Plan Malawi International Organisation through its
“Yes I Do” project was meeting with primary school teachers in Ntaja and Namandanje
Educational Zones in Machinga district.
According to the project Coordinator Joseph Maere, the organisation discovered that
children with albinism face various challenges in their school environments like insecurity,
segregation and discrimination from their fellows.
Maere therefore called upon school administrations to consider putting into consideration
strategies that will ensure maximum security, and give stiffer punishments to students and
teachers who abuse human rights of albinos in school campuses.
Maere explined; “Through our project, we have discovered that a good number of boys
and girls with albinism have dropped out from school here in Machinga due to the outlined
problems. That is why we are asking teachers to consider protecting those children as a
way of bringing them back to school.”
