Classrooms for Malawi came to talk to 4th year pupils about their work.
Charity Co-ordinator, Tony Begley, accompanied by OLHS former pupil, Daniel Canning, explained their beginnings from Mary’s Meals. Pupils watched a video, seeing the conditions of some Malawian schools: children trying to learn in blazing heat outdoors, or subsequently unable to attend school in the rainy season, and classrooms crammed with fifty or sixty children.
They also learned how the community is totally involved in the creation of new classrooms, raising some of the total cost, and providing skilled workers.
OLHS and Classrooms for Malawi are now investigating ways of working together.
