MALAWI: Orphan School Teacher’s Housing

The Malawi Children’s Village provides high quality education to orphan youth in a rural region of the country, but the schoolteachers are currently forced to commute a long distance to get to the work they are so passionate about. JI Volunteer Maggie designed an innovative and eco-friendly duplex housing blocks out of local materials just across the street from the existing school to allow staff easy access to the school while still retaining necessary privacy. The local team is already constructing the first duplex on a fast-track schedule!
