Mkanthama school is in a rural remote area of Lilongwe east T/A Chimutu in Chiwamba. Most kids were failing go to school because there is no school in the village. The only closest school is 20 kilometres away hence the kids could not afford to walk for such a long distance. Building Futures in Malawi opened a nursery school in a temporary block. The school received a positive feedback and the need for a proper school was overwhelming
Building Futures in Malawi (BFM), started construction of school blocks consisting of three classrooms to occupy students form standard 1 to 3.
