In Malawi and Zambia, communities are required to provide housing for government-provided teachers, 95% of whom are married with children. This is one of the perks of being a teacher, and is a large benefit of the teaching profession in these countries. Usually, this housing consists of a small two or three bedroom home with no plumbing or electricity. Despite the meager cost, many villages have no ability to provide this housing, resulting in fewer teachers willing to teach in these more remote schools due to logistical constraints. There are many qualified teachers ready to teach in these rural villages on a more permanent basis if they had staff housing. Help us construct these simple staff houses in our Malawi and Zambian communities so we can attract better and more permanent teachers to our schools.
