Tens of thousands of children attend primary school in the rural Mangochi area of Southeastern Malawi. However, few are able to go beyond the 8th grade because there are no secondary schools in the region. Without this opportunity, the children can only follow the example of their parents and grandparents to an existence of subsistence farming, malnutrition, and limited hope for the future.
This summer, World of Difference volunteers will partner with volunteers and villagers in Malawi to build the area's first high school. A well has been drilled to provide clean water, and the Education Ministry has approved the site, which will be accessible to children in 8 surrounding villages.
The volunteers will build classrooms, a library, lavatories and desks for the students..
The volunteers will also bring books and school supplies, as well as sports and playground equipment. For a preview of the excitement and satisfaction of the project, watch this link of last year's project at Makumba School.
