Learner reading at Bumba Primary School

Malawi

School Aid has been working with partners in Malawi since 2012. During that time we’ve reached some of the country’s most remote schools, shipping over 196,980 books to 150 schools which support 96,535 children, including a number of orphans and vulnerable children. In 2016 we worked with our partners on a research and development reading club project, the resulting success of which has helped shape and roll out our current reading club programme in our other focus countries. In 2018 we will launch the first School Aid Malawi school library, complete with a trained library assistant.

Books catalogued in the UK ready for libraries in Malawi

School aid volunteer, Pauline, successfully catalogues the first UK books onto a database for Bumba library in Malawi. Being able to provide shelf ready catalogued books to our libraries in Malawi and Lesotho means that the books can immediately be borrowed from the library and saves our Library Assistant a great deal of time that can be spent instead working to help the learners and educators to support literacy learning. It’s another first for School Aid.
