In 2011 a project 

Building a Cultural &Educational Centre with program for children with special needs in primary schoolshas started.

Malawi south eastern africa

Most African countries have already  introduced generalprimary, free-of-charge 

education for the children, but:

  • classrooms are overcrowded, pupil to teacher ratio in rural schools is roughly 60-100 to 1

  • teachers cannot work with pupils individually which is especially tough on children with special needs who do not follow the lectures and do not meet the required standards of knowledge.

  • Although primary education is available, a great portionof pupils do not benefit from it, as the education theyget is weak.

  • That fact diminishes their chances to enter good secondary school and later find a descent job.

  • Therefore their and their family’s future is destined to poverty.

Our goals are:

  • to provide learning aid classes and help to children with learning disabilities(problems with concentration, difficulties with fine motor skills, dyslexia …) so they have a better chance at successfully finishing primary school and have better future.

  •  to provide lectures and workshops for teachers (introducing child-oriented teaching system, alternative methods on working with children with special needs)

  • to diminish dropping out rate from primary education.
