The overall goal for the Education sector is to ensure that, “All children read, enumerate and have other life skills to enable them survive in life-long education by the time they leave primary school.” Education is currently our largest sector in terms of budget. Geographically, we have programmes in 16 out of 28 districts in Malawi.

Save the Children is recognised as a national leader in developing and delivering quality community-led Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) and Basic Education programmes. We are also known for our leadership in girls’ education programming across primary and secondary school levels. We design and deliver innovations that address educational challenges in ECCD, primary and secondary education levels.

Save the Children in Malawi works with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) and the Ministry of Gender, Children and Community Development (MoGCD) and other education stakeholders to achieve equitable access to quality, relevant and inclussive ECCD, basic (primary) and secondary education.
