Of the 413 children at Nankhono school, just 120 children have an indoor learning classroom, and the remaining children are taught under trees or basic, non-weather proofed shelters. Each year, this impacts on hundreds of childrens' learning as the searing heat and rainy season make for a terrible outdoor learning environment. With no boys toilets, and just 5 girls toilets for a entire school, this rural Malawian village has not enjoyed investment from large aid agencies.

One in four children don't get to attend or finish primary school in Malawi. However, the development in education is a complex picture. Similar to many sub-Saharan African countries, the quality of primary education in Malawi remains poor. The majority of primary schools are lacking fundamental amenities, such as buildings, toilets or teachers homes. 413 children come to Nankhono School, and yet just 120 children are schooled inside a classroom, leaving the others learning under the trees.


We have embarked upon a fundraising appeal to build out Nankhono, in Malawi's school infrastructure. We have just $50000 remaining to finish the third school block, toilets and teachers homes and the first two are already underway which is really exciting! Giving children year round access to classrooms is critical to their staying in school. During the rainy season, most children who are not learning in a classroom stay home because of heavy flooding, rain and cyclones.

Long-Term Impact

Each year, these additional school blocks will provide capacity for 240 children who will be able to come to learn year round, which accumulates to: 2400 over ten years 24000 children over the life of the building. Giving access to children to a fundamental basic education is critical to their educational and economic progression, and one of the single most important ways to enable people to lift themselves out of poverty. The impact lasts a lifetime! Acquiring basic literacy is essential.
