Classrooms for Malawi believes that the only sustainable route out of poverty is education. We work throughout Malawi to improve places of education in some of the world’s poorest communities. Recent estimates show that around 2 million children in Malawi are either taught in unsafe and unfit classrooms, outdoors, or simply cannot go to school as the facilities are not there. We want to put an end to this.
A child with seven years of education:
Earns 70% more
Is 43% less likely to be malnourished
Is 40% less likely to contract AIDS
When a country educates its children for seven years:
The economy grows by 25%
The chance of conflict reduces by 32%
We undertake a comprehensive building programme working with volunteers, schools, businesses, community groups, local authorities and other charities to facilitate work in Malawi. To date we have built and renovated in excess of 40 classrooms, as well as building or improving sanitation facilities and completely refurbishing dormitories, all in the belief that improving school infrastructure will help thousands of children in Malawi break the cycle of poverty.
