Braidhurst & Malawi

Braidhurst & Malawi

We are looking to join this programme and create a direct link to a Malawian school where we will work alongside them to improve the attendance and quality of education. In order to do so, we plan to do the following:

  1. Partnership

We will create a partnership with a school in Mulanje, a small area of Malawi. Alongside other North Lanarkshire schools, we will aim to build strong links through constant communication with the objective to develop a good working relationship.

  1. Employ an attendance officer

In aim to boost the attendance of girls in our school, we will employ a female attendance officer who will travel the local area and encourage young girls to attend. Transport, probably in the form of a bicycle, may also be provided. This role will be carried out by an ex-pupil of the school, a female who made it through primary and secondary and is thought to be a ‘role model’ to young girls of the community.

  1. Fundraising: The ’Malawi Committee’

Raising funds is key in order to send educational resources to our Malawian school and also to send some of our pupils out to visit. A committee will therefore be set up, meeting one lunch-time every two weeks, to develop ideas and organise fundraising events. We are inviting anyone in S1-6 to join and become involved in the whole school initiative.

  1. Educational Visit to Malawi

We have the opportunity through fundraising to send several pupils to Malawi in June 2018.

The visit involves:

  • Fundraising of £1750 per child – carried out within and out with school
  • Fly to Malawi in June 2018 for roughly 10 days
  • In return of the visit, pupils will creating a powerpoint of their experiences and deliver this to the school.
