Esther asks govt to prioritize education

First Lady Esther Lungu has urged government to consider education as top priority for sustainable development.

Speaking when she officiated at the launch of the Lafarge Foundation a Lafarge corporate social responsibility initiative at Twangale Park in Kafue today, Mrs Lungu notes that education for sustainable development enables learners to attain knowledge and skills and values that will shape their future.

Mrs Lungu stated that the future that is desired is where poverty is eradicated with the environment sustainably used for present and future generations where diseases such as HIV and AIDS are eradicated.

She said that she is pleased to note that the country has already attained the primary education target of 100 percent target.

Mrs Lungu stresses that this can be attributed to the construction of more schools, the removal of primary school fees and the re-entry policy.

The First Lady has also pointed out that Lafarge is proving to be a partner in Zambia’s development because the foundation will be involved in three areas of intervention such as health, environment and education as this will positively contribute to moving the sectors to greater heights.

And speaking at the same function, United States Government head for Saving Mothers Giving Lives Claudia Morrissey says her government remains committed to helping Zambia reduce its levels of maternal mortality.

Meanwhile Lafarge Chief Executive officer Emmanuel Rigaux says Lafarge has already made available funds for over a period of three years to help prepare the foundation for its work ahead.
