Tapani Classrooms and library

Why we need your help

We are delighted to partner with Tapani Primary School, a feeder school to Hope CDSS,  to build a classroom block and library. Over half the chilldren at Tapani learn outside,sitting on stones or on the ground, so provision of classrooms will have a huge impact on teaching and learning at the school.

Working with the Ministry of Education, we will build a classroom block with two classrooms and a library which will enable 200 children to have a better learning environment which will mean learning improves. The library will enable a reading culture to develop at the school.

Teaching and learning outside is hugely challenging.  The weather is either very hot which is difficult to teach in or there is torrential rain when lessons stop and children go home. Sitting on stones or on the ground is uncomfotable and it's very difficult to write notes in excercise books.

Tapani currnetly has very few books, only a few text books for the top year groups.  A fully resoureced library with a librarain will enable children to develop a reading culture and to learn more about the world and culture. English is the children's second language and is not spoken at home.  It is however the buisness language in Malawi and a good grasp of it opens up opportunities for employment and development.

Tapani is a remote school in rural Malawi, situated 15km from a tar road, over a bridge which is currently broken.  We are working with the local council to mend the bridge and with the community to ensure they are commiteed to the education of their children.

We are currently working with the ministry of education to build toilets at Tapani, and will work with them to build the classroom block.

The goal: increased number of children staying in school, improvement in spoken and wirten English and increased number of students selected to secondary schools.
