Group of people

We provide a range of targeted programmes to address the issues identified via our school monitoring and support process: Find out more about our School Performance Review process in our Virtual School.

Family Literacy Project

The Family Literacy Project aims to address the low literacy achievement of many primary school children and the lack of confidence of parents/community members in their ability to provide support to these children. The project operates in 60 schools and communities and aims to directly impact on 28,388 lower primary learners and a minimum of 56,776 parents through Reading Club, adult literacy classes and community reading fairs.

Malawi School Solar Network (MSSN)

The Malawi School Solar Network provided solar power, laptops with internet connection and IT training to 15 primary schools in the Dedza district of Malawi. Teachers at these isolated, rural schools used to spend hours travelling to deliver reports or access support from the District Education Office. Now up to date information is shared by email. Teachers use the internet to find teaching aids to improve the learning experience in their classrooms, and receive advice and professional development from their local Primary Education Advisor.
