Zach Louw, ‘St Joseph’s Primary School - Malawi’, 2016, Museum of African Design (MOAD)


This shot was taken at St Joseph's Primary School in Malawi. This is one of many schools that are in dire need of basic school resources.

Chitsanzo Private Primary needs more permanent structures than its current bamboo and thatch classrooms. Others like Domboshawa need access to clean water, electricity and a lightning conductor to stop the classrooms from being struck. Some like St Joseph's need basic classroom resources such as books and chalk.

It’s apparent that every school has its own set of unique needs. There is no blanket solution.
