Background: Malembo is a secondary school located in a rural area of Malawi. There are many out-of-school children in the area due to poverty, orphaned children, and the long distance to existing schools. Many of the children attending the existing school learn outside under the trees. The classrooms are severely overcrowded. The need for a new classroom block is extreme, and the community has shown they are excited by showing up in large numbers to contribute to the construction!
