Construction of a School Block to Improve Children’s Access to Primary School Education

Year: 2021
Country: Malawi
Project Status: Funded
Impact Sector: Education
Project Investment: $9,716.20

Project Launch: 9-9-21

In this project, Chiyembekezo Lyson, will work with the Kimu Community to improve children’s access to primary school education at St Peters Primary School by constructing a two-classroom block. The $9,716.20 two roomed school block will accommodate at least 160 learners and reduce congestion in classes while at the same time improving the working and learning environment. Currently, the school has inadequate and dilapidated infrastructure that prompts students to learn under trees and in hazardous situations that put learners’ and teachers’ lives in great danger and reduces classroom attendance rate.. The project will also aid in reduction of congestion and enhance adherence to COVID-19 preventive measures.
