School is up and running

The Miqlat Primary School, Thuchila is up and running. Well, mostly. The uniforms are still being sewn, the desks are being varnished, the chairs are being finished but school started on time. There are two classrooms - one a standard (grade) 4 & 5, and one a standard 6. Both are being taught by young Malawian men. One of them grew up in the Miqlat system through the Kogoya program. They both seem like they will do a good job. They are being assisted by the facilitators at the center.
It has been fun to see this come to fruition. Soon all the bugs will be worked out and the kids will be getting a far better education than they could get at a public school.
