Mwana Africa Primary School - STD 1 - 3

Following the successful completion of the Mwana Africa Nursery School, the amazing support we have received from the local community and everyone that has donated, Made in Malawi are ready to embark on their next project. The first block of the Mwana Africa primary school will consist of three classrooms, each with the capacity for 40 - 50 children and will be located next to the Nursery School building. The new block will take the total capacity of the school up to 180 children, it will create jobs for three new teachers a cleaner and lots of local tradesmen. We aim to have the project completed by December 2011.
