Amidst great celebration Hope CDSS opened on 22nd February with 55 excited students attending for the first time. Most of these students would not have been selected to secondary school if Hope were not opening as there are not enough secondary school places in this rural part of rural Blantyre. For most students the walk to school is now shorter although many will be walking up to an hour to get to school on dirt tracks.
We were able to provide the students with pencil cases and exercise books because of generous donations through sponsorship, We also talked about the hope that the students can have to reach their potential and impact their communities. A wonderful day!
