Mlambe School Block Fundraising Campaign

The local community is desperate for Mlambe School to provide a full primary education for their children.
Currently Mlambe School only has the buildings and facilities to teach children from School Year 1 to School Year 6. However, in Malawi a fully operational primary school would teach children up to School Year 8 (around 14 years old). At the moment, after finishing School Year 6 at Mlambe School, children have to study elsewhere to complete their primary education. The next closest school to Mlambe is an hour's walk away. The travel takes just too long for many families who need their children to help with farming, so these children never have the chance to compete their primary education.

The Mlambe Project recognises this overwhelming need and wants to build an additional school block and give the children of Chikolongo the chance of a better life.

We aim to complete the new school block by this September, the start of the next academic year, in time to enrol children in School Years 7 and 8. In order to do this we must start the building work by June 2017.

The cost to build two new school classrooms (a new ‘school block’) is £8300.

Cost breakdown:
£3000 - Wages for 13 people (3 months)
£5100 - Building materials
£200 - Food for builders

We rely entirely on voluntary donations, which is why we urgently need your support.
