Moir Walita Mkandawire, Girl Child Education

Chankhomi Girl Child Education is a right-based project that will improve the learning conditions of girls at this school. The project will provide a sanitary facility for the girls at Chankhomi community day secondary school within Rumphi urban, in the northern part of Malawi. Girls at Chankhomi have no bathrooms and this is a great challenge especially during their monthly period as girls decide to stay at home for the entire 5 to 7 day period. This problem affects the performance of girls in class and increases girl child school dropout.
