The Mzuzu Entrepreneur Hub will construct a library and resource center that will benefit students, teachers, youth, and other community members around Chipunga, Malawi. The facilities will provide access to information through academic materials, Sexual Productive Health rights (SRHR) materials, and entrepreneurship and technology resources. This will support students in their academic pursuits and holistic development. For the community, access to information on SRHR and business management will help the members make informed decisions on issues that can potentially sustain and improve their livelihood. The project will benefit 56 students enrolled at the school and over 2,000 people from the surrounding community.  

Project Update: 4-1-20

Despite the heavy rains and poor road conditions that they encountered, Mzuzu Entrepreneur Hub (E-Hub) and the Chipunga Community have completed moulding 4,100 soil stabilized bricks for construction of the library. Motivated by the vision to have their first ever library, community members have been highly involved, bringing sand and providing labor towards the construction. The foundation has been completed and the walls are under construction. Through the project, Mzuzu E-Hub has reached out to 52 students through mentorship and motivational talks as a way of enhancing their studies. In response to the project, Karonga Diocese of the Catholic Church and Nkhatabay District Council have jointly constructed a borehole at the school which is the major water supply for students and surrounding community members, highly impacting their ability to access clear and safe water.
