Extensive work is presently being carried out to expand the secondary school in the community of Kamphenda.
Until now, this school consists of only one building with two classrooms, which means the students have to leave and find another school after two years of education. Most of the young people are unable to attend a secondary school further away, so they do not take their education any further.
The building of this new school block is proceeding very well. The head builder, Bosco Zgambo, is very experienced and hard-working. He lived in Lilongwe for a long time but after the death of his wife he returned to his native village, Mwazisi, which is within the catchment area of the Centre.
The school building will have two attractive and spacious classrooms, with good windows, a ceiling, a small storage room and will be equipped with electricity. Craftsmen are now working on the plastering, painting, and laying of cables. The blackboard is quite remarkable because it is made entirely from brickwork.
Now that the Kamphenda school is almost ready, the students in Kamphenda will soon be able to complete their secondary schooling, which will improve their chances on the labour market. They are very happy with this promising perspective!
