Funo Langa campaign launched to support poor students

It was a historic evening for girls in Malawi on Wednesday 5th December at the Mt. Soche hotel in Blantyre. Dignitaries from different sectors in the country gathered to be a part of the Official Launch of the fundraising campaign for the Girls Secondary Education Trust Fund. The Trust Fund referred to as “Funo Langa”, was set up to provide access to quality education for vulnerable students in Malawi, particularly girls.

Water scarcity is affecting students at our school

Mphunzi Community Day Secondary School is in Pinji village in Traditional Authority Kachere in Dedza district. The school lies at the bottom of Mphunzi hill and is very close to Mphunzi health centre. The school has a shortage of water. This negatively affects us, students. There is only one borehole available which caters for students, teachers and the surrounding community. Unfortunately, sometimes it dries up and students have to wait for long periods of time until it water starts again. Lack of water means that there is poor sanitation at our school.
