Minister Abida Mia tells Muslim women to encourage girl child education

At a gathering of Muslim women in Kanjedza, Blantyre, Minister of Water and Sanitation, Abida Mia, delivered a compelling message, urging mothers to champion education for their children, particularly girls.

In her address, Mia emphasized that the antiquated practice of coercing young girls into marriage is incompatible with modern times. Instead, she advocated for empowering Muslim girls to pursue education as a pathway to their future success.

Furthermore, Mia extended her encouragement to women across the nation, urging them to consider careers in politics, thus amplifying their voices in decision-making processes.

Renowned for her philanthropic endeavors, Mia also demonstrated her commitment by providing essential items, including maize flour, to support the women in attendance.
