Enhancing conducive education infrastructure at Chibanja Primary

Year: 2023
Country: Malawi
Project Status: Funded
Impact Sector: Education
Project Investment: $8,396.20

Project Launch: 9-14-23

PACE for Change in partnership with the Chibanja School Parents and Teachers Association  (PTA) seeks $8,296.20 from World Connect to construct additional classrooms at Chibanja Primary School in Mzuzu, Northern Malawi. Currently, Chibanja Primary School has 4 teaching blocks that provide 8 classes for the aggregate enrollment of 1,137 learners by which the space is inadequate to accommodate  them all. Therefore, the new classroom block will cater for a safe and better environment for  over 200 learners that are currently learning in makeshift classrooms  and in  the process contribute to improving  the quality of their education.  

Project Update: 12-1-23

The shortage of classrooms at Chibanja Primary school in Mzuzu reached an alarming level as over half of its 1,137 learners learn in makeshift classrooms. This prompted Pace for Social Change in collaboration with the community to seek support from World Connect to construct an additional classroom block. Two months after funding,  the superstructure is at  ring beam level  and other critical materials have already been procured. When completed, all 1,137 learners at the school will be accommodated in a conducive learning space which will  motivate them to do better in classes as they will be protected from bad weather.
