Our Work So Far
Chimbota Secondary School is part of the Chimbota Community Development Organisation, a registered non-profit, serving the villages around Bwelero and Dindano, to the south of Nkhata Bay.
Kev Trouton is a key figure in this work and works hard on partnerships to bring innovative ideas such as solar lighting for the school or compost toilets to increase the quality of life and bring new ideas into the community. One particular focus is Chimbota’s work promoting girls’ education, and bringing young mothers back into school.
Like many secondary schools in Malawi, a big challenge that the Chimbota Secondary School faces is the funding of further education or university fees. As you grow older within the Malawian school system, the more expensive education becomes which often leaves pupils left with no options after secondary school.
We support Chimbota with a monthly donation to their school and help out with specific needs where we can. For example, we gave a classroom set of laptops for their ICT suite when they were donated to us.
