Chisala School was built by the Build Malawi Project in 2007/08 and was initiated by Tanya who moved to Malawi to complete the project. The following structures were built: 4 double classroom blocks, 4 teacher’s houses, administration block, IT centre, urinals and toilets, a library, borehole and piped water and a sports block.
The school was opened by the British High Commissioner in 2008 and handed over to the government. The government pays for teachers and resources, and Expand helps add to these and with annual maintenance.
Chisala now has around 600 students and 11 teachers. There is now a new school leadership and Chisala has said goodbye to its founding headmaster, Mr. Banda. We wish the new administration all the best! For 2016, Expand has completed the construction of 4 new teacher's houses and now will focus on a literacy boost scheme, sports, tree planting and a schoo garden.
