Hope4Malawi - Hope Secondary school

Why we need your help

Hope Secondary School in rural Blantyre is currently being built and is due to open in September, giving 50 children in Form 1 the opportunity of a secondary education which otherwise they will not have.

This school is adjacent to Chipwepwete primary school where we provide a feeding programme, and have provided classrooms, library and .other educational resources

Great progress has been made at Hope CDSS this month.  The roofs of the classroom block and science block are on, so plastering is now moving on apace.

Teacher housing and toilet foundations have been completed and the walls will be built in June.

The local workers are brilliant, hardworking and diligent.  We continue to provide soap for them and their families weekly and encourage them to practise social distancing. 

The main challenges at the secondary and primary school are the supply of water and power.  Currently we are employing 10 local ladies to collect water for the building work.  Sadly the borehole is low yield and the amount of water needed is not available form the borehole.  Because of this in the afternoons, the ladies go to the the river to collect water.

Currently at the primary school the feeding programme isn't running becuase schools are closed due to Covid19.  When the feeding programme runs there is additional pressure on the current borehole because of water.

We are talking to drillers about siting a borehole on either the primary or secondary school land, which will provide water for the feeding programme and for the secondary school toilets, lab and teacher housing.  This will take considerable pressure off the community borehole. This will have solar powered pump which will enable water to be run into both school sites.

The area around Chipwepwete has no power currently. Although there are plans for the whole area to be electrified this will not happen imminently.  Therefore we would like to provide power for the primary ad secondary school by providing solar power. This will be primarily used for powering computers, lighting, and teachers housing.
