The road so far in Malawi

We’ve just wrapped up two major projects in Malawi, which seemed like the perfect chance to look back at how far we’ve come in the past few years. What a difference!

With your support, we’ve seen a 22% increase in the number of children passing their primary school leaving exams. 5 times more community members told us that they think their school is being managed well. There’s been an 88% increase in the number of marginalised people getting involved with school activities – that’s people who live with disability, albinism, extreme poverty and vulnerable young people such as orphans.


We’re blown away by the progress made in school communities. This paints a beautiful picture of more children than ever before learning well in better schools, supported by their communities, and in a stronger school system.


To read more about the progress and how we got there you can read our latest report.


Hear first-hand from the communities themselves how we’ve helped make a difference in the video below.
