Norway Prime Minister Ms. Erna Solberg is expected to visit Malawi 1 – 2 July to launch a girls’ education programme that will be implemented jointly by 3 UN Agencies – UNICEF, UNFPA and WFP.

The project, “Improving Access and Quality of Education for Girls in Malawi” is a three-year joint programme that will provide a range of interventions to address key known threats to girls’ education which are poor food and nutrition, inadequate protection, poor quality schooling and violations of girls’ sexual and reproductive rights. Funded by the Kingdom of Norway, it will be implemented initially in schools in Dedza, Salima and Mangochi districts and will be launched in Dedza at Nthulu Primary School.

During her visit she is expected to meet Minister of Education Dr. Emmanuel Fabiano, Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende, UN Assistant Secretary-General Thomas Gass and members of the Millennium Development Goals.
