Improving the learning environment for primary school children
PRIMARY EDUCATION IN MALAWI, AFRICA
We support six government-run primary schools in and around Mwaya in Malawi. Our aim is to improve the learning environment for the children by reducing class sizes through building new classrooms and funding additional trainee teachers.

Primary Education in Malawi, Africa
Achievements and Future Plans
We support six local primary schools. We pay the salaries of four additional Malawian trainee teachers and have built six double classroom blocks, menstrual toilets and a teachers’ office. To improve the learning environment for the children, we have provided desks and books, and we have renovated and painted classrooms and toilets. We will continue to support the six primary schools with similar projects as funding allows.
How We Work
We work in conjunction with the District Education Department and the local headteachers. The needs of each school are assessed and support is provided where most required.
