The educational campus provides the soil for healthy growth. Here, our students mature into responsible people and qualified applicants. The 12-hectare site provides the foundation for an ever-expanding education and training facility: the Education Campus.
The FACE Secondary School, which is being established on the Education Campus, needs more than just classrooms. The quality of a school also includes the well-being of its students and staff, as well as extracurricular development opportunities. The concept for the expansion of the education campus has already been drawn up. The designs by German architects are being realized by Malawian employees. Side by side and step by step, a multilateral educational facility is being created that will offer living, working and schooling opportunities in equal measure.
With every new year, the number of students grows. Consequently new room and space is required at the same time. Over the last years, 4 classrooms accommodating over 100 students have been built and furnished. For pleasant room climate, the classroom roofing was constructed very elaborately, allowing hot air to escape over the roof while cool air circulates in the rooms.
FACE provides teachers of the secondary school with several rooms used for breaks, meetings, class preparation, and offices. Places of retreat to refuel for the busyness of every-day school life.
For those who want to get to know and join in the work of FACE locally, accommodation on the school campus is offered. The apartments are fitted with bunk beds and have fully equipped washrooms, which make them, for Malawian standards, a comfortable place to stay.
In order for students to educate themselves in interests outside of the classroom, a library can be found on the campus. The English books help students improve in the language in which they are taught, while also pursuing personal interests.
The training center has two main purposes. Here, useful tools and machinery are safely stored, not only for daily construction of the campus, but also for future use in the craftsmanship education that will be provided.
In Malawi, connection to electricity is not necessarily something to be expected. On the campus, every building is equipped with electricity lines. Of course functional kitchen-, and work tools as well as having light during dark nights are obvious advantages.
A nearby well supplies the apartments with fresh drinking water. With the use of an electric pump, even surrounding neighbours of the campus profit from the water supply.
In Malawi, soccer games are a recreational highlight that connects crowds of people – whether the players themselves or the spectators. The school campus now features a regularly used soccer field.
