About this project

We met the people of Chiuno Village in 2018. Here in one Southern Africa's remotest areas they live below the poverty, child labour on the surrounding tabacco fields is widespread, the literacy rate is below national average and socio-economic mobility is low. 

It is the people's dire wish to built a school so that their children can have access to education and a save environment away from the tabacco fields. We want to support this wish and aim to especially address the needs of young women and girls to finally get access to education a break with the cycle of poverty. 

While we are close to finish the first phase of construction, we are hoping for further donations to realise four more classroom giving space for another 128 students. 

In all our activities and decisions we are closely cooperating with the community. The people of Chinuo have registered as a CBO (Community Based Organisation) and are greatly incooperated in every step concerning the development of the school. It is assured that men and women are equally involved in the deciosion-making process.

Chiuno Village and its surounding villages and hamlets are situated around 7km north-east of the provincial capital of Kasungu. While the CBO in Malawi is currently producing bricks and erecting the first tract of the school building, we are hoping for further donations in order to finalise the entire school building and thus be able to open the school in August this year. We offer general and earmarked donations (e.g: purchase of specific material or building elements, school material, water and electricity supply), as well as sponsorships of individual students or families.
