    As a citizen of Mchinji, this is a good initiative which will go a long way in keeping girls in schools and succeed. My worry though is area of implementation. Mchinji has close to 9 traditional authorities. Targeting only three is not enough. Consider supporting this organization with more resources so that its intervention reaches to us
