RCH School Programme Description
The Rural Children’s Hope – RCH – involvement in education started in 1996 with the Pre-School which Christine Menda opened in an abandoned Nyanje Hospital Hall.
Because of the limited number and enrolment capacity of primary schools in the areas, children were denied access to education and ended up in the streets and looking after animals.
In 2003, we built Chokato RCH School, to offer free quality education to the Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) coming from very poor families, who were not reached by the mainstream national education system. We give priority to the girl child and boys who are being exploited by their parents/guardians through house chores and cattle keeping.
