Germany World Mission of the United Methodist Church (GWUMC) has pledged to continue supporting nursery schools run by the Malawi United Methodist church in the country as part of the early childhood development program which the church is currently doing with 15 nursery schools across the conference.
Speaking at the official opening of the United Methodist model nursery in
Blantyre on Friday the 5th Oct, GWUMC General Secretary, Frank Aichele emphasized that the church will continue providing funding for construction of nursery schools in Malawi as one way of promoting early childhood development
In his statement, Aichele said that Germany World Mission provided support to the nursery school project following the bible teaching as caring for children since they are future church leaders and community leaders as well. He however advised MUMC leadership and the community around to take care of the school for it to have a positive outcome to the children.
“Use the school wisely for this to have a good impact to our children,” said Aichele.
Commenting on the development, Group Village Chief, Baluti paid a vote of thanks to the church through its partners from Germany for building a nursery school in his community which he observed will help children to get quality education at an early stage.
He promised to commit himself in all activities leading to the development of the school and pledged support for the school and said he would encourage his community to support the school by sending their children to the Methodist school.
Records indicates that the project had cost 10, 000 Euro and 13, 000 US Dollars which the United Methodist Church of Resurrection in Kansas, USA contributed on roofing the building.
Meanwhile there are 15 United Methodist Nursery Schools under the supervision of the church’s women’s ministry.
