What is the project about?
The current project is to build a new preschool in the small community Gowoka, near the Mzuzu in Malawi. Preschools (or Community Based Childcare Centres) are essential for local communities, not only for the children in the ages 3-5 who make use of it, but for the community as a whole as well.
Together we have defined a goal of € 30.000 to build a school equipped to raise and care for around 50 kids. Complete of four classrooms, a kitchen, a computer lab, a library, and space for parenting education, the CBCC is destined to become more than just a school, but a true centre for the life of the community.
Through Chideso we connected to local contractors to define the cost and timeframe for building the school and singled out the land to build it. As our vision is to empower the community to grow, our goal is to fund buildings and not the running costs of a school.
