Providing an early years education to 800 children every day
PRE-SCHOOL EDUCATION IN MALAWI, AFRICA
We run eight pre-schools, providing an early childhood education to over 800 children every day in Malawi. The children learn the alphabet, numbers, colours, shapes and much more. Singing, dancing and play are important parts of the day, and at the end of each morning, the children receive a nutritious meal of sweet potatoes. Since Ripple Africa opened its first pre-school, more than 4,000 children have benefited from the flying start that Ripple Africa is giving them.

Early Childhood Education in Malawi, Africa
Achievements and Future Plans
We provide an early childhood education to over 800 children who attend our eight pre-schools each day. Every child that attends receives a nutritious sweet potato meal and since we started, more than 4,000 children have passed through our pre-schools, many of whom have now finished both primary and secondary education. We will continue to support and run our eight pre-schools and provide the teachers with more training opportunities.
How We Work
Our Pre-school Coordinator manages all eight pre-schools and 27 teachers, and monitors them regularly. We run regular training sessions for the teachers and children are encouraged to come to school to get a sweet potato breakfast. We also make the children’s education fun and effective.

Why It Is So Important
What We Have Achieved
How We Work
Our Pre-school Coordinator manages all of our eight pre-schools and teachers, and he monitors them regularly. We make the children’s education fun and effective, and they are encouraged to keep coming to school for their sweet potatoes which are grown and provided by the teachers. We have a robust safeguarding policy to ensure that all children attending are protected.
The Project's Future
Early childhood education is really important. We will continue to support our eight pre-schools by paying the salaries of teachers, maintaining the buildings and providing resources. We will also provide the opportunity for volunteer overseas pre-school teachers to work with our staff and ensure that we share best practice.
