School Building and Development


Most schools lack sufficient classrooms which means many classes take place outside or in temporary shelters.  This makes teaching and learning challenging in the sunshine and almost impossible in the rain.


One of our goals is that children have a great place to learn. A priority is that each of our partner schools has sufficient well equipped classrooms, a fully resourced library, toilets and teacher housing.

Our main focus is to develop Hope Secondary School, a new school opened in February 2021, and to provide infrastructure for its 4 feeder schools. We also continue to partner with Mpemba primary school.


Over the next 5 years our aim is to partner with the Ministry of Education to build and equip 12 classrooms, 9 toilet blocks, 3 libraries and 4 teacher houses

Secondary School Development

Hope Community Day Secondary School in Mabala Village opened in February 2021. We continue to partner with the Ministry of Education to develop the government run secondary school, which creates 60 additional places each year for those who pass the standard 8 exams. Most students at Hope would otherwise not have a secondary school education.

The school currently has 4 classrooms, a science block with a library, an administration block, 2 student toilet blocks, running water and 3 teacher houses. We have a great working school but still a huge opportunity to develop. The project has four phases.  We are currently in phase 2.

Phase 2 is in progress. This involves providing solar power and equipping the science lab and computer lab.

Phase 3 includes building a fence around the school, more teacher housing and an assembly hall.

Phase 4 will increase the school enrollment from a maximum of 240 pupils to 480 pupils with 2 form entry. This will require 2 additional classroom blocks and 2 further blocks of student toilets.


Please partner with us to provide a great education for some of the poorest children in the world. 


All UK charity running costs are covered by our Trustees, so 100% of all donations go directly to providing an education for children in Malawi.

Classrooms and Libraries

Most schools lack sufficient classrooms which means many classes take place outside or in temporary shelters. This makes teaching and learning challenging in the sunshine and almost impossible in the rain.

Hope4Malawi has funded seven primary school classrooms, 2 libraries and 3 kitchens in the last seven years, built by local partners. 


Our focus, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, is to help develop the feeder schools to Hope and also at Mpemba Primary by providing classroom blocks at Mpemba, Tapani, and Mafunde as well as libraries at Chimwemwe, Tapani and Mafunde. 


Your help will really make a difference to the children in Malawi.  A donation big or small helps us to realise Hope in these schools.

Toilets and Changing Rooms

Mafunde toilets 1_edited.jpg

Many girls in Malawi drop out of school when they reach puberty, due to cultural pressures of early marriage, pregnancy, lack of parental encouragement and poor sanitation provision.  Despite these immense pressures, many young girls in Malawi have dreams and ambitions and are determined to go to secondary school and make a difference in their lives both in the home and at work.


All schools need adequate girls' toilets and a changing room for changing sanitary towels, etc.   We are partner with the Ministry of Education and Headteachers to build toilets  in 3 primary schools.

Why not consider twinning your toilet with a toilet in Malawi! Each toilet costs £200 in a block of 6.

Through local partners, we also provide training for the girls in menstrual hygiene, understanding cultural myths, and providing appropriate sanitary materials so that they stay in school.
