Nankhono School student aspirations!

Dear Supporter,

Thank you again for supporting the construction of two school blocks at Nankhono Primary School in Balaka, Malawi!

 

Supporting aspirations of success

You support is helping ensure that 171 more children in Malawi now go to school. The children at Nankhono have inspiring aspirations to support their community and country, and your support is enabling them to go to school and learn the skills they need to live the lives they choose to value. 

Watch this video to see the children of Nankhono speak about their aspirations!

Why your support matters

In communities every day across Malawi millions of children are taught with little more than a blackboard beneath a tree: Malawi is missing 36,000 classrooms (1). Most are missing from rural areas, where a quarter of people live in extreme poverty. (2) 

We serve the marginalised children and their families of rural Nkhonde Zone, Balaka District in Southern Malawi, by helping them build robust, fit-for-purpose classrooms, attract and retain qualified teachers, and overcome such challenges as improving school toilets, which increases school attendance, particularly for girls. In doing this, we employ and train local people, developing their livelihood, education,  and employment opportunities.

By donating to this project, you have directly made a difference to 171 such children and their families.

 

Our COVID-19 response

It's hard to write at this time and not touch on the impact of this on all our lives. As the world economy shrinks and charitable giving turns to supporting local charities in these uncertain times, please stand with us and remember the children of rural Malawi. They have no robust health services, they have no food banks, their families - of whom a quarter live in extreme poverty - have no income support. Their schools are closed, and they are vulnerable.

Your support is more valuable now than at any other time, and your impact as a result is enormous. We have suspended classroom construction on the next project at this uncertain time, but only temporarily. As soon as the situation in Malawi is clear again, we will to be ready to spring into action and keep increasing access to quality education. 

Thank you for supporting us, and we hope that you are well and safe in these challenging times.

I'd be happy to speak at any time if you have any questions or would like to find out more. Feel free to reach out using ed@themlambeproject.org / +447940257935 .
