Improved Collaboration Yielding Fruits

Mwembedzi is a primary school in Mwanza district that is situated near the boundary with Chikwawa district. The school has four feeder villages namely: Ngadziwe, Mdzinja, Mwalemera and Jeke – characterised by many children who drop out of school due to poverty and lack of parental interest. 

Like many schools in Malawi, the school has governance structures including Mother Groups (MGs), School Management Committees (SMCs) and Parents Teacher Associations (PTAs).
