The Story

Direct Development: The Chikwawa Girls' Fund

In the Northern Region of Malawi, a landlocked country in South East Africa, lies Chikwawa Community Day Secondary School. Originally started as a private school in the early 1990s, it has since opened its doors to all the students in the area to meet the rising demand for secondary education. The school currently serves around 400 day learners, and an even larger number of afternoon open school learners every day. Sadly, the school is poorly equipped to handle that magnitude of students. There are currently only two teachers houses, two school blocks with two classes each that cannot accommodate the 400 students. The school also has a dilapidated administration block and an unfinished girls' hostel. 

Despite how bleak the situation may sound, the community has hope. Recognizing the shortcomings of the school, the community has mobilized to build at least eight teachers' houses and complete the girls' hostel. Currently the community has already prepared 500,000 bricks to construct the teachers' houses. 

The development team has made a lot of headway, but they have yet to realize the funds to complete the construction process of these facilities. Malawi has remained one of the poorest counties by GDP since it's independence in 1964, and finding the income to maintain the basic school functions and contribute toward the development fund have proved beyond their current ability.

With your contributions, we can make these dreams a reality.

Here's Where Your Money Will Go:

The completion of the girls' hostel is just the first in many steps towards providing a better education for all the students at Chikwawa CDSS. In addition to the contributions you make here, the community is also actively giving their time and money to develop the school. They're giving it all they've got! Even just a small contribution from you will help them reach their goals.


Your money will support:

  • The completion of construction of the girls' hostel
  • Beds and mattresses for the girls
  • The construction of 8 teachers' houses

Hostel Update!


So we started out the gates with a pretty ambitious goal of raising enough money to purchase beds and mattresses to furnish the girls hostel, but it's been a bit rough moving forward.


We'd really like to get the ball rolling and show the progress that is being made so we've adjusted our goal to finish cementing the inside and outside of the hostel. To achieve this goal we have to raise $700. We can't do it without your help so please like and share this post to spread the message, and give a donation when you can!


Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!
