WE STRONGLY SUPPORT GOVERNMENT EFFORTS TO TACKLE TRUANCY PROBLEM
December 18, 2019
SATF being education stakeholder supporting Most Vulnerable Children (MVC), truancy has been one of the major obstacles reaching its mission of transforming MVC to become productive members of the society. Truancy levels are alarming especially those caused by early childhood pregnancies, and child labor. Apart from efforts taken to address the problem by motivating best performers still the problem has been increasing levels.
We are grateful to hear that, the responsible Ministry has intervened to address the problem by involving various stakeholders including Local authorities, Parents and Teachers to control truancy.
SATF has high expectations that through this intervention, consequently the number of MVC attending and completing school will increase, translating to more beneficiaries being transformed to productive members of the society. The article issued through the Guardian dated 16th December 2019 cites the Government’s commitment towards this noble intervention.
