Mvama CCAP Church of Area 49 in Lilongwe plans to open a fully-fledged Community Day Secondary School (CDSS) in September this year.
The church’s fundraising chairperson, David Ng’onamo, said it has always been the wish of the congregation to complement government efforts in improving the quality of education in the country.
Ng’onamo stressed that the opening of Mvama CDSS will bear testimony to the congregation’s commitment towards improving the quality of education in the locality.
“We want this place to be not only the centre of spiritual transformation, but also academic excellence. Currently, we are operating Mvama Christian Academy for pre-school learners, which we opened a few months ago. All this is aimed at helping us to realise our dream of contributing to the improved quality of education in the country,” said Ng’onamo.
He said the church has lined up a number of activities to raise funds as well as material resources for the construction of a structure to accommodate the CDSS.
The church’s resident pastor, the Reverend Chrispin Baziwelo, said the opening of Mvama CDSS will help reduce the distance learners are currently walking to nearest schools in the area.
“This school shall be open to all learners irrespective of their religious backgrounds. As such, it is our appeal that people of goodwill should feel free to contribute towards the project,” he said.
The church is yet come up with a budget for the school project.
