Our help, their future.

Together we are building a sustainable Malawi

In 2003, through funding from ICCO and the Friends for Africa Foundation, a hostel was opened to accommodate 20 students in the hospital nursing program. The students are trained to become full-fledged nurses. In the process, the hostel provides a place for the students to sleep. The hospital is now able to accommodate students from all parts of Malawi. Two years later, in 2005, a janitor's house was built at the hostel.


Why is building housing needed for good education in Malawi?

This project in which our foundation had the opportunity to participate is a good example of what else is involved in good education. In Africa it is often necessary to provide sleeping facilities for teachers, students and other staff in addition to a school. Often the infrastructure is impassable and then a good sleeping place near the study becomes important. Building a house or in this case a hostel means that again there is more space for students to get an education. So building housing ensures that students have a nice place to stay near their school but also that teachers and other staff (such as janitors) can live nearby.
