Thanks to many generous donations from our Pumulani guests, the Pumulani Team were able to go out and deliver stationery, notebooks, and stickers to many grateful children and teachers at Nankhwali Primary and Secondary School.
Standard 7 children were the first to receive with each of them getting a pencil case equipped with pens, pencils, erasers and protractors as well as a notebook for their studies. In addition, we were also able to give each child in standards 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 a pencil, eraser and colouring pencils. Saving, of course, the stickers for the youngest members of the school, standard 1. The smiling faces in the pictures show how happy the children were to receive these gifts.
Teachers were not left out and also received coloured paper for their class and other resources to help them in their role.
Secondary education in Malawi is not free (unlike primary education), so many pupils cannot afford to attend Secondary School. In order to lend a helping hand to its local community, Pumulani sponsors students every year to attend Nankhwali CDSS (Community Day Secondary School), who otherwise would not be able to afford to go. Currently, there are 6 sponsored students attending the school who each also received a notebook and pencil case equipped with everything they need to make their studies easier. Two students will be writing their Malawi School Certificate Examination (MSCE) this year and we wish them every success in their studies and future endeavours.
