HeartoHeart is partnering with buildOn to build a school in Malawi; a developing country in extreme poverty.
Malawi is consistently ranked among the world’s 20 least developed countries on the UN Human Development Index.
72% of the country’s population lives below the poverty line of US $1.25 a day.
Nearly half of primary school-age children dropout before advancing to secondary school.
40% of all adults in Malawi are illiterate, with the rate in rural areas nearing 70%.
