For the children of Malawi, primary schooling offers the first rung on the ladder out of poverty. The Anglican Diocese of Lake Malawi, with over 100 primary schools in its care, aims to play a full part in this task, under the guidance of Mr Oscar Mponda, Projects & Education Officer.

But, as in all primary schools in Malawi, there is an urgent need for more classrooms. Too many classes still meet under trees or in grass shelters.

MACS has raised funds to build 6 new double classroom blocks.

.

Thanks to the generous donations from our supporter two of the double classroom blocks have been completed and the other four are nearing completion:

Mikanga Primary School  2 Blocks.  ONE COMPLETED

Sopani Primary School  COMPLETED

Chakulanjala Primary School

Msambaimfa Primary School

Kanthete Primary School

Mikanga Primary School Block 2

The Community has obtained the materials they are supposed to contribute and they are ready for the project to start. The delay has come about because they have been waiting for the builder who built the first classroom block. He was engaged at a different school to construct a classroom block. Now that the other classroom block is completed he will start this project very soon, possibly end of this month.

 

4th March 2020

The community have engaged another builder so the project has started.

29th April 2020
