Building facilities to provide students with a great learning environment
SECONDARY EDUCATION IN MALAWI, AFRICA
Ripple Africa has built Kapanda Community Day Secondary School near to the primary schools we support so that students don’t have to walk 15km each way to the other nearest secondary school. The school was handed over to the government to run but we continue to support Kapanda Secondary School by building new classrooms and facilities and improving existing ones.
WE STARTED BUILDING THE SCHOOL IN 2008
CLASSROOMS ARE EQUIPPED WITH DESKS
WE HAVE BUILT A GIRLS’ DORMITORY

Achievements and Future Plans
We have built two double classroom blocks, a Physics Laboratory, a Computer Laboratory, five teachers’ houses, a teachers’ office, toilets, a Girls’ Dormitory for 56 girls, a kitchen and a dining and study block. We have also provided mains electricity to the school, text books and desks. We continue to support Kapanda Secondary School as funding allows, and build more teachers’ houses to ensure that the school is able to attract the best quality teaching staff.
How We Work
We work in conjunction with the District Education Department and the headteacher. The needs are assessed and support is provided where most required.
