Education for children in Malawi

Malawi is a landlocked country in southeast Africa. Even though school attendance is compulsory for elementary school, only half of the children attend classes. Crowded classrooms, missing furniture, and a lack of supplies impair the learning conditions. Both elementary schools, Mkoma and Malika, in the project region Lilongwe suffer from a lack of facilities. In Mkoma, 2574 students have to share 16 classrooms while the majority of the girls and boys sit on the floor and classes are partially held outside. Similar conditions can be found in Malika. Additionally, the sanitary installations are in very poor condition, which makes it difficult for students, especially for girls, to protect their privacy.

Our project “School education for the children in Malawi” aims to improve the learning conditions in the elementary schools Mkoma and Malika.

The foundation's funds are used for:

  • Building classrooms, accommodations for teachers, and sanitary installations
  • Extending the water supply
  • Providing furniture and school supplies
  • Educating teachers in child-friendly teaching methods and equality

By financially supporting this Plan International Project, Berlitz wishes to contribute to a safe and child-friendly learning environment for students at both elementary schools in Malawi.
