 March 29, 2012, School mentoring event (Rotary Global Grant 25585):

Mawanda Primary School’s average performance in Primary School Leaving Exams (PSLE) over the three years, 2009-2011 was 37% whereas its mentor school, Mwika Primary averaged 93%. Focus group discussions revealed that Mawanda is a school torn apart by serious breach of trust between the school, parents, and village political leadership. Mawanda stands out as one of the most beleaguered of schools in Mwika. It has been losing students. Over the past year, its enrollment has halved to below 100. Could the school be saved from self-extinction? Should it be?
