Supporting local schools and increasing the overall standard of education in the Chilumba area is important, not just for the success of D2D’s sponsored students who attend these institutions, but also for the other students in attendance and the community’s development as a whole. This is why D2D remains engaged in both the school management committees and the maintenance of the schools’ infrastructures.
Determined to Develop has supported its local high school, Khwawa Secondary School, by electrifying the whole campus, building two classrooms which are used by 400 students each day, and establishing latrines. The organization is now in the process of constructing a new kitchen at Khwawa Secondary School to improve the health and safety standards for students and staff members. D2D also contributes to Khwawa and other local secondary schools in the form of books, science equipment, desks, and teacher trainings.
Determined to Develop provides support for local primary schools as well, having established latrines and built a kitchen at the nearby Sangilo Primary School.
