Hope4Malawi celebrate opening of new classroom block
Hope4Malawi recently celebrated the opening of a new classroom block at our partnership school, Chipwepwete Primary.
The project, funded by our staff, students and parents through Hope4Malawi, and despite the recent devastation caused by Cyclone Idai, concluded with the classrooms being officially opened last month.
Our Malawi team have been working on this project for two years; in 2017 our student team helped dig the foundations and made some of the bricks from local clay; in 2018 the group helped to skim the classrooms, and our 2019 team have fundraised for 125 new desks, which they will use to teach lessons when they visit in July.
Chipwepwete Primary’s Headmaster, Leonard Haj, expressed his thanks, which can be seen in the video below:
On behalf of the Malawi team we would like to thank all in our school community for their efforts in the continuing development of Chipwepwete Primary.
