EMPOWERING GIRLS IN MALAWI THROUGH EDUCATION
Our goal is to build a free boarding secondary school, along with a nursery school, to be able to accommodate young women with or without children and give them the education they deserve. School farm and solar panels will provide sustainable energy and food for the students.
For many young women, school is the only safe place. We want to empower them to be able to learn and help raise a new generation of educated women and their children.
WHAT WE PLAN TO DO
* Fundraise and plan an environmentally friendly secondary school and nursery school with solar energy and sustainable water and waste management solutions in Neno District in Malawi.
* Run a school farm that provides sustainable healthy meals for all school staff and students.
* Organise busses for school transport.
*Offer great quality free secondary school for teenage girls from families who cannot afford payed secondary education for their children.
*Offer school spaces for teenage girls who are pregnant or have young babies or toddlers so they can continue with their education.
*Provide good quality teacher accommodation at school so that the rural location of the school would not be a barrier for best teachers.
*Link up the school with resources and teachers from all over the world through online learning resources and video lessons.
*Work closely with the local community so the benefits of this project reach outside of the schools walls and make a lasting change in the area.
Lumi Education is run by UK based trustees along with an amazing team of Malawian volunteers who are passionate about making their country a better place and about educating and safeguarding children.
Our trustee team is excited to make a positive impact in Malawi and using their varied skills to raise funds and plan an exciting school project, along with our team in Malawi.
Our volunteers in Malawi have years of experience with working in their local communities as well as with big international NGO-s.
HOW WILL YOUR CONTRIBUTION HELP
The money we raise goes to different stages of creating Lumi school. At this point, we are fundraising to buy the land, register the school project with the Malawi government and start preparing the school farm, once the land is bought. Our next stage of fundraising will go towards the building of the school.
As you can tell it is an exciting and big project so every donation will get us closer to making this a reality for teenage girls and babies in Malawi.
