A project from Support Malawi Heidelberg e.V.
in Chipoka, Malawi

Chipoka is a small town in Malawi on Lake Malawi. A little way out of town stands a big, new primary school, with currently 1000 pupils. All that is now missing to complete the school campus, is accommodation for the teachers.

Chipoka is a small town in Malawi, south of Salima, directly on Lake Malawi. A little way out of town stands a big, new primary school, with currently 1000 pupils. It was built in 2014, with large classroom buildings, thanks to the support of a Spanish charity. Support Malawi e.V. financed the toilet facilities. All that is now missing to complete the school campus, is accommodation for the teachers.

This would benefit the whole school, because at the moment the teachers live a long way from the school, and have to commute up to 2 hours to work. The attractivity of a teaching post, and thus the ability of the school to keep its teachers for a long time, would be increased by improving the infrastructure. Teachers would change less frequently, the children would have a longer relationship with the same reference person, and the teaching staff would be a stable team.
