Project Info

Mwanga wants to build a teacher's house at the community's primary school to solve a persistent problem.

Community Problem: Mwanga has trouble attracting qualified teachers. This is because the primary school lacks adequate teacher housing, with only 7 teacher's houses for 18 teachers. Teachers who don't get a house at school are forced to rent a house in the surrounding community and often travel great distances to and from school, typically on a bicycle. This increases teacher absenteeism and lowers teacher morale. To avoid this hassle, many good teachers seek assignments at schools with abundant teacher housing.

Community Solution: Build more teacher's houses. This project will assist not only a teacher and his/her family, but 2,274 youngsters who learn at Namphungo Primary School. It will also build capacity in a community that has organized this project and invested its resources to cover 20% of the overall cost, including 5% in cash.

Partners: National Peace Corps Association & Friends of Malawi

Outcome: housing for an additional teacher and his/her family
