Growing up today into adulthood is more challenging than it ever used to be in the past, in the past young people tended to move directly from childhood to adult roles. However, today the interval between childhood and the assumption of adult roles is more challenging and lengthening. This is due to a number of factors like; increased poverty, social inequalities, low quality education, gender discrimination, widespread unemployment, weakened health systems, and rapid globalization. PPCI is much aware of this issue and has put in place mechanisms in the PSPF scheme to tackle issues that deals with growing up in its behavioral change program BEHAVIOUR ASSESMENT. Where PPCI Field officer take their part in conducting counselling sessions with the PPCI client and beneficiaries on the behavior change and all those cases are followed up to make sure there are settled.


Following up on a child’s education is very important for the success of education. Almost every activity; plan, policy, plan or program without a proper follow up is most likely deemed to fail. This is why the PPCI in its scheme provide education performance assessments to make sure that success is realized and with Excellency. To achieve this, PPCI field officers visit the teachers of the beneficiaries in their respect schools to conduct performance assessments with their teachers. This involves an analysis of the performance of the respective child in his or her subjects with the core aim of identifying whether there is progress being made. The main aim of this program is to analyses the performance of the beneficiary himself or herself as on what subjects that chap should be helped or facing problems.


In reference with the research or assessment conducted in each and every task at hand there is an action plan to be conducted. PPCI Malawi in respect with the research conducted it offers part-time lessons during the holidays.

These lessons are conducted for each and every one whose beneficiary tuition for secondary education is being invested with PPCI Malawi. The part-time sessions shall be conducted in their respective schools with their tutor upon discussion between the PPCI Malawi Officials for the payment and the modes that shall be used by tutors, upon finishing the part-time lessons PPCI Malawi shall be responsible to pay the tutors upon the agreed rate based with the duration.


This activity is outlined based with polices of PPCI Malawi to foster education related to sustainable development goal number 4 that is promoting quality education where each and every client and beneficiary shall sit for educational counselling, health counselling and behavior change and monitoring activities. This counselling is provided for free to everyone whether registered or unregistered. Where Malawi as a country shall face outbreak PPCI Malawi shall take role in providing counselling with its professional counsellors. As there is change in the age interval in Malawi most of the parents do not counsel their children on the behavior and moral values, PPCI Malawi is entitled on providing counselling to improve the well-being of our beneficiaries as it is believed that; they are future leaders.


Many people feel that primary school is too early to start thinking about careers. Sometimes this is expressed as a desire to ‘let children be children’ as they will have plenty of time to worry about careers later in life. This concern ignores the reality that even if formal career education does not start until students are 11 or 12, they will already have learnt informally about careers.

PPCI Malawi ensures that children are learning about career even if they never discuss it at school. The value of involving schools is that we can ensure that career learning is less random, less partial, more equal, more accurate and more able to challenge young people’s implicit stereotypes and assumptions. The purpose of primary career education is not to dissuade young people from fantastical aspirations or from using their imagination to dream big; rather it is about demonstrating new and exciting possibilities and preventing children from closing off possibilities.
