Project - Education - Equipment



Both primary and secondary schools in Malawi are desperately short of books and equipment. We are able to send some donated items to Dedza. Shipping is very expensive, so we are restricted to sending a few boxes in a shipping container organised each year by Glasgow City Council and boxes that volunteer visitors can take with them as extra luggage. We can receive items throughout the year and store them until the shipping date. We can wipe information from phones and computers.
