Primary and secondary schools to benefit from Malawi shipment

Country:
Date: 6th June 2013
Status: Arrived

School Aid volunteers turned up in force on the 6th June to pack every inch of a 20ft container with textbooks, reference books and fiction bound for 18 primary and secondary schools in Malawi.

Books donated by schools, libraries and individuals across the UK will benefit more than 7,500 children in largely rural schools around the Dedza region. Most are taught in classes of 100 or more, with no school library and even essential textbooks in very short supply, so these new resources will make a considerable difference to their educational opportunities.
