During the first half of 2022, our local partners, including CLS representative Janet Kasambala-Phillips, looked around for suitable building sites in the greater Blantyre area and found what they were looking for.
32 villages belong to the new school’s catchment area.
They are all between half a kilometre and 14 kilometres away from the construction site. 9,500 pupils currently attend primary schools here, of which about 1,100 have the grades that would allow them to attend a secondary school. Since the nearest secondary school is currently 30 kilometres away, the conditions are ideal for our project.
The Liwiro Secondary School would be a learning and living space for 480 children and young people.
