Building Hope Secondary School at Chipwepwete, Rural Malawi

Only 10% of children in Malawi currently complete secondary education. Thus, very few people learn sufficient English or develop skills which would enable them to work in any other capacity beyond growing enough food for their families.

For those able to go to secondary school, like fifteen year old Lucky who walks an hour and a half to school, there are over 70 children in each class. There are very few books or other resources and no electricity or IT provision.

Hope4Malawi, in partnership with Fisherman’s Rest in Malawi have helped children at Chipwepwete primary school by providing a fully resourced library and librarian, six brick classrooms and providing a daily feeding programme. Many children are now inspired to further their education and develop their skills so they can play a part in changing their communities.

We can help them achieve this dream by providing the infrastructure of a new secondary school in the same locality, working with local government who will provide teaching staff.

You can partner with us to shape these children’s future. Through partnering with us to build Hope secondary school, we will not only provide opportunities for children from Chipwepwete primary school but also children from other rural primary schools. Please help us to improve education and give hope to individual children in one of the poorest countries in the world.

Progress update: 2 classrooms, a science block with lab, computer room and library has been completed.  An administration block with reception, head’s office and staff room has also been completed, as have two student toilet blocks and 3 teacher houses. Another classroom block is almost complete just needing roofing and floor .

We are now planning the interior of the buildings for the classrooms, the library, IT room, lab, staff room and Heads office.  As the area has no electricity this will also include solar power.

Please partner with us and help to provide a great education to some of the poorest children in the world. You can give your gift here

All charity running costs are covered by the Hope4Malawi Trustees and there are no salary costs so all donations will be used to provide education for children in Malawi
