Background: Chilima Primary School was built by the community in Lilongwe Rural West, Malawi, in 1997. There are over 300 children in the area without a place in a classroom, and the current classrooms at Chilima Primary School are overcrowded and falling apart. The classrooms that exist currently were built by community members who are not skilled in construction, as the government did not provide any assistance with construction. There is also no furniture in any of the rooms. Coafrica is thrilled to be able to build two blocks of 4 new classrooms for this community. The children in this village deserve a safe place to learn.
