Final Report: 5-31-22
Tsalani Primary School Management Committee, in collaboration with Dalitso Mndala, a CorpsAfrica alumnus, has successfully seen the construction of a two-roomed classroom block at Tsalani Primary School, the second with World Connect support. The $8,992.84 newly constructed school block in Miliyoni village, Senior Group Village Head Chiendausiku in Balaka district is accommodating a total of 143 students with 76 learners in standard 5 and 67 learners in standard 6. Before the project, standard 5 and 6 students used to learn under a kitchen shelter. Apart from learning in a conducive environment, the students are also enjoying a reduced distance as some used to travel a distance of not less than 3 km to the nearest full primary school. Additionally, the new classroom block has also attracted more students leading to an increase of 530 learners from the initial 481 learners. One of the community members expressed his gratitude by saying “as a community member this project has given my children the opportunity to access standard 6 education in a good environment and closer to home”.
