The impact has been phenomenal in Malawi and in Scotland. Since our first project in 2016, the final year pass rates at Pasani have risen from 46% in 2016 up to 97% in 2019 (that included 100% of the girls). All the teenagers who have participated have come back home with a profound sense of global responsibility #heroes

We have run two projects with Classrooms for Malawi to rebuild classrooms at Pasani and Nansato Primary Schools in the Likhubula area of Malawi. Our first project was very successful and we managed to repair and renovate 18 classrooms. The second project built a new block at Pasani as well as repairing another ten. 32 teenagers from Dunblane gained an enormous perspective of their global responsibility and we hope to give others in Dunblane the opportunity to experience this in future projects.
