As always we are extremely thankful to our partners and contributors who work so hard to raise money for our work.  

New Headteacher announced

We are pleased to announce the appointment of the first female headteacher at the school: this has been a long-term aim and will provide both strong leadership and an excellent role model for our students. The lady of the moment is Mrs Masamba, who comes with excellent qualifications and a wealth of experience. We hope that her appointment will be a significant milestone for the school in its quest to promote the education and empowerment of young women in Northern Malawi. 

Building Progress - Kitchen/Diner Complete

The new kitchen/diner is now open and operational; this will provide an invaluable large indoor space for use both by the school and the local community.

Donated money has now been released and work is underway to complete the science block, which will contribute hugely to the girls’ learning experience.

Thanks to a recent grant from the Solon Foundation, duplex housing has been constructed so more teachers can be accommodated on campus.  This will help in the recruitment and retention of good quality staff.
