Education is without doubt the key to the long-term success of Malawi, enabling dignity, self-sufficiency and future prosperity.

The JCT faces a challenge in acquiring books for the pupils from grade 1 to 8. The foundation does not have enough teacher guides and text books for all the pupils. The JCT are very keen to ensure that quality education is promoted and are therefore asking for any support on this matter in 2015, as we feel that the books should be a priority for the schools.

Enrolment of pupils at The JCT School is 840 in total.

To this end the JCT Foundation are focused on the development and provision of primary and secondary education. It costs just 40 (64USD) to send a child to secondary school for a whole year, but even this relatively small fee is out of the reach of many orphans.
