In April 2019 we were able to provide a classroom of desks to Mazembe Primary School. Thanks to more funding from several sources we have now been able to equip numerous classrooms at Mwaya, Matete and Kachere primary schools – and just before Christmas too!
Most primary schools in Malawi are very basic, lacking the most fundamental resources, including textbooks and basic teaching materials. Although many primary schools have brick classroom blocks, many students learn outside in temporary structures. This makes teaching impossible during the rainy season. Often three students have to share one desk, if they are lucky enough to have desks at all. Having a desk is a vital part of learning, making it easier to write and concentrate in the lesson, creating a much better learning environment.
Being able to provide more desks to the primary schools we support is brilliant and we are really grateful to our donors for continuing to support our Education projects in Malawi. Thank you.
