Classrooms for Malawi

 
 

The young charity Classrooms for Malawi have based their offices in our Hall.  The charity works hand in hand with some of the poorest communities across Malawi to help them build new classrooms or to renovate rooms that have fallen in to a serious state of disrepair. Its volunteer staff are bound together by two shared passions; one for Malawi; the other education. Their profound  belief is that it is the opportunity of an education that brings about real and sustainable change for children in the developing world.  Education provides a route out of poverty and is the key driver of economic development.

Its founder Tony Begley says, “We are aware of the scale, complexity of the problems and challenges that faces schools in Malawi, but we love to work there as we have made so many friends and built so many lasting relationships with a variety of individuals, schools and others in this area. We are also proud of the fantastic support and working relationship we have with other charities and NGO groups – Mary’s Meals, Islamic Relief, The Well Foundation, The Press Trust, churches and schools of all denominations, just to mention  a few. We enjoy helping and supporting any individual or group trying to improve Education in Malawi.  In just under three years we have completed 70 classrooms, 10 dormitories, 8 toilets, one shower room, two feeding kitchens all of this achieved without any external or governmental funding, most funding coming directly through the efforts of our volunteers and other supporters.”
