COVID-19 and Malawi Update

In Malawi, the schools have now re-opened  just for the exam classes. The Primary Leaving and MSCE exams which should have been in June will now take place in October, so that progression to the next stage for the fortunate few can still happen.

All other classes will return at the beginning of October. The pupils all require face masks and hand gel,  which we have offered to fund for the children and young people whose education we fund through Tikondane. Tikondane have done a wonderful job in preparing the “street children” for the return as best they can and we are proud to be supporting them.

In the country as a whole the virus has not, so far, done as much damage as feared, with just under 200 deaths so far.
