International Day of Education – Malawi Education Joint Fund Project
Following heavy rains, floods and hurricane winds over the past years in Malawi around one million people were affected with deaths and injuries in large number reported. The global warming and climate change have contributed to the returning disasters and have triggered significant damage to Malawi’s educational infrastructure including public primary schools, teachers’ houses, furniture and textbooks. Where buildings were left standing, many classrooms were converted to shelters for approx. 90,000 displaced people, whose homes had been swept by the floods.
To restore effective teaching and learning in the affected areas, CES Consulting Engineers is supporting Malawi Government to rebuild school facilities with an emphasis of “building back better” with new more resilient structures and WASH facilities more responsive to the safety needs of boys and girls with financial support funded by the German Financial Cooperation through the Education Services Joint Fund.
