As a way of improving access to education in Musisita village in Nkhotakota, Banonie Mwale is constructing a primary school in the area.
Mwale who is currently staying in Dubai introduced a charitable organisation under his name aimed at seeing the children in the village accessing education near them.
Through the charity, he managed to introduce a nursery school called Jenny Naylor Nursery School in the area.
Mwale believes that the only way his village of Musisita can develop is through education hence he banged heads with well-wishers from United States and United Kingdom to help him realise his dream of making Musisita village a fully civilised village in terms of education.
Group Village Headman Musisita hailed Mwale for his efforts and he said that the young man is a pillar of people in his village.
According to Chief Musisita, the dream of having a school in his village began ringing in his mind way back but he had no support particularly in terms of funds.
“Banonie bailed us out by introducing a nursery school and he has big plans of constructing primary school blocks that are currently in progress,” Chief Musisita said.
The chief said Banonie’s plans will benefit all children in his village as they will be able to access education and will be key players of development in his village and Malawi at large.
He expressed concern that nearby schools are far away and children face challenges when going to school particularly during rainy season when the rivers flood.
“The coming of the nursery and primary school will make sure that the learners in this village are accessing education throughout the year without interruptions like rains and the like. This will help the learners to concentrate on their education and do better,” Chief Musisita said.
Banonie has two women Jennifer Naylor and Magret Tempero from United Kingdom and from United States of America respectively who created two fund me pages aimed at sourcing funds for the school projects.
