Foundational Learning Steering Committee Launch

On Wednesday, 19th April 2023, the Foundational Learning Steering Committee (FLSC) was launched officially at Kumbali Lodge in Lilongwe by the Minister of Education Hon. Madalitso Kambauwa Wirima.

The aim of FLSC is to unify different projects implementing foundational learning programmes like NNP, National Reading Programme (NRP), BEFIT and Mary's Meals among others. The committee champions five (5) strands: Strand 1; Providing best support to teachers of standards 1-4, Strand 2; Improve training and deployment of teachers, Strand 3; Redesign curriculum and improve its resourcing, Strand 4; Expand school feeding coverage from 35% to 100% and strand 5; Digitalize education for access, quality, efficiency, and resilience. NNP is implementing strands 1,3 and 5. One of the key features at the launch was the marketplace area where different projects and programmes displayed their products, services and activities. NNP had its own stall where the learner workbooks, teachers guide and coaching app were on display.
