Description

The Jacaranda School, supported by the Jacaranda Foundation, provides a holistic approach to educating children. In addition to free primary and secondary education, students receive daily nutrition programs, AIDS awareness activities, medical care, music, arts, sports and environment enrichment programs, and university scholarships. We take a comprehensive approach and also support our community with several outreach programs.
As COVID-19 rapidly spreads across Africa and has reached Malawi, we are intensely focused on the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and community. We are working to keep everyone safe and are distributing masks and soap, ensuring vulnerable families receive porridge flour and maize flour, implementing health education, and developing a remote education model for our students. We are helping the slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community through these measures.
