About Build a school

Ddff9036 0d8a 4abf b0f2 e2ca4610f52e

Last year we started building a school in Nkhata Bay, Malawi. The school is meant to host 35 children after the normal school working hours. Most of these children do not have families or come from a very poor background. Having a shelter school where to go to will keep them off the street. The foundations and the walls are already there, but we need help to finish the work. And after a good working day, what better than going for a swim in the crystalline blue waters of Lake Malawi just 5min walking from there?

Application Process

If you are interested please contact us via email, explaining something from your background, your motivation and when/for how long you would like to support us in Nkhata Bay. We will come back to you in a couple of days.


Parents and children are invited and encouraged to get involved.
