Location: Lilongwe West, Malawi

Project scope:  8 classrooms

Impacted Children:  210 students

Timeline: June – September 2021

Community Involvement: Unskilled labor, maintenance, security of materials

Background: Chilima Primary School was built by the community in rural West Lilongwe, Malawi, in 1997. In 2021 there were over 300 children in the area without a place in a classroom, and the existing classrooms at Chilima Primary School were overcrowded and falling apart. The original structures were built by community members not skilled in construction, because the government did not provide any assistance.  Coafrica is thrilled our classrooms provide the children in this village a safe place to learn.

The students at Chilima are so wonderful. These Level Five learners were still studying for an upcoming exam when Goodwell, our Malawi Project Coordinator, came to check on the project. These students are the WHY to everything we do here at Coafrica!
