The community organization, in partnership with the School Management Committee, is making good progress on the construction of a classroom block at Mbiriwizi Primary School. Despite challenges imposed by the rainy season and the COVID-19 pandemic, they expect to complete the construction in two months. Once completed, the school will graduate to a full primary school with eight classes instead of the current six. Subsequently, the enrollment is expected to increase as this block has capacity to serve 100 students in total. This finished classroom block will also reduce the distance students have to travel to access higher classes.

Mr. Mark Gondwe said, “The people of this community have shown commitment towards this project. They have worked tirelessly to contribute towards locally available resources and we will continue rendering support towards the project.”
