Mwana Africa Primary School - STD 4-8

It has always been the aim of Made in Malawi to build a full Nursery and Primary School for the children of Chipoka and the surrounding towns and villages. Following the successful completion of the initial Primary School block and the development of the new toilet block, we are now ready to embark on the next stage of our mission. The second primary school block will consist of 5 classroom which will be the home of standard 4 - 8 children. Each of the classrooms will be able to accommodate 40 -50 children aged between 9 and 15. 

The development of the new block will increase the total capacity of Mwana Africa from 180 children to 380 children. The build will create job opportunities for lots of local tradesmen and once completed it will create employment opportunities for five local teachers, a cleaner and a security guard.
