MORE INFO

Through our partnerships we are able to bring quality reading materials to students and teachers in their schools.

 

In August 2014, A team from Hope 4 Malawi joined us to open the new library at Mpemba Primary School which they funded. The library has been painted with cartoon characters, colourful shelves and equipped with desks and chairs for the students to study on. A simple classification system has been established and organised in such a way that teachers and students can easily navigate their way around.

To date we have built and fully stocked 5 libraries complete with full-time librarians, these librarians have proved essential, ensuring the books are well kept, monitored and signed in and out of the libraries. The Librarians also help the children read, learn new things and build on their education outside of school hours as well as in.

We will be opening more libraries in our local primary schools in the near future and we will be adding IT technology to provide additional learning resources and opportunities.
