Update: Our Progress with the Rotary Global Grant

Dear supporters of APU,

We wanted to give you a brief update on the progress that has been made on the work that was planned as a part of our $235,000 USD ($320,000 CAD) Global Grant from Rotary International

The below are images of work that is taking place at APU as we speak. All of these items below take us to 80% of the grant and we’ll need to wait for Cadre (inspection) by Rotary International before the 60 new computers and electronic equipment for the classrooms.

Teacher training on use of the technology continues in September.

THANK YOU to Rotary International and our Rotary partners in Canada and Malawi who have made all of this possible

  • I am very impressed with the Atsikana Paulendo Project. The fruits of this project is far reaching because it directly addresses the imbalances which exists between girls and boys education in Malawi. The emphasis on quality is exceptional
