Malawi 1, Mzimba

Free Primary Education in Malawi was first introduced in 1994, under pressure following the first multi-party elections and the newly elected government. By providing free education to primary schools, the government anticipated an increase in access to education, elimination of inequalities in participation, and an overall understanding of the importance of education. Despite the attention education has gained worldwide in aiding development, Malawi is one of the many countries that has struggled to maintain good quality education. The government relies heavily on outside donor finances and resources, which have been shifted from other sectors in the country.

Furnishing the Embombeni Primary School Administration Block

2 Months


Centre for Youth and Development (CYD)

In 2022, CYD supported Embombeni Primary School to finalize the construction of an administration block. However, this project did not include support to furnish the administration block. This year-end project will therefore support the procurement of the following; 1 office table for the headteacher’s office; 1 office chair for the headteacher’s office; 4 visitor chairs for the headteacher’s office; 1 filing cabinet for the headteacher’s office; 6 tables for the staff room; 16 chairs for the staff room; Shelving for the staff room; 4 tables for the library; 10 chairs for the library; shelving for the library, and curtains.

The project is anticipated to benefit a total of 500 people annually. The first segment of beneficiaries is a total of 16 teachers (10 males and 6 females) who will use the furniture on a daily basis. Consequently, the project will benefit 490 learners (254 boys and 236 girls).
