NBM Donation to Kacheche Day Secondary School

on .

Kachere Donation

Somewhere in the northern region of Malawi, there is a small village that lies in between mountains called Chingerezi Mithi in the Traditional Authority of Jalavikuwa in Mzimba District. In that village there is Kacheche Community Day Secondary School that caters for all young men and girls from the village and other surrounding villages. Being very far from the City of Mzuzu and Mzimba Boma, it is difficult for the learners to get what they need most to improve the quality of their education. The students lack basic items like writing materials, chalk, classroom cleaning materials among other small items. The school also relies on drawing water from the village borehole and often times, priority of drawing water is given to the villagers and not the school.
