Classrooms for Malawi Appoint a CEO

Classrooms for Malawi are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Chief Executive Officer, Amy Blake.

Since our inception as a charitable organisation in 2012, we have benefited from the hard work and leadership of many volunteers (past and present) who have tirelessly worked to deliver a positive impact for the children of Malawi. In order to continue and grow this amazing organisation, as a board of trustees, we made the decision to appoint a full time member of staff who will lead the organisation in our next exciting chapter of growth and to deliver even more positive impact to the children of Malawi.

Classrooms for Malawi believe that education is the most sustainable route out of poverty. For this reason, we build schools in some of the poorest communities in Malawi to enable children to learn in the safe and secure environments that they truly deserve – but we can’t do it alone!

An ongoing partnership continues to flourish!

Today it is the turn of the Gleniffer High School CfM team to set out on the long journey to Malawi. The good people of the school community from Renfrewshire are no strangers to Malawi, once again, staff and pupils are once again working in partnership with their partner school Dzenza PS, Dedza Central Malawi, where already they have worked to renovate four classrooms.

This fantastic young group will be working with our local team and community to renovate a completely dilapidated 5 classrooms block which has required a new roof, roof trusses, floors, windows, drains and much more.
