Back to School Project
Agape House is expanding our impact by working in districts such as Likhubula, Mbayani and Chilimba to address the high drop-out rate by re-enrolling children back into public schools. As part of this initiative, we provide school fees, uniforms, supplies and mentorship.
Secondary School Project
The Agape Scholars International Secondary School Program is critically important in Malawi for several reasons. The success rate for the completion of primary school is only 35%; this is due to the high drop-out rate, high student-teacher ratio, and the overall effects of poverty on resources available to children. This results in a number of students who are unprepared to pass the primary school leaving exam (PSLE), which allows them access to secondary school. The access rate to secondary school is only 17%.
Our program helps to alleviate the challenges in the education system by specialized tutoring for students in groups with a much lower student-teacher ratio. As of 2019, Agape Scholars International has successfully helped fifty students enter secondary schools.
