Detailed description of the Caring for the Destination Initiative:
A wildlife club was set up with the assistance of the Lilongwe Branch of the Wildlife Society of Malawi. Beehives were donated to assist with the relocation of the infestation of bees in the classrooms, with the idea that the honey would be harvested and sold to assist the school. This unfortunately did not happen as the bees, once moved, did not return.
The Classrooms receive new coats of paint nearly every year, repairs to blackboards and notice boards are done each year, educational murals have been painted, the staff room was rehabilitated to better cater for the teachers.
A number of educational materials, books, clothes and sporting equipment have been donated.
The school toilets were repaired and put into working order and the boys dormitory was renovated.
