SCHOOL IN AN ENVELOPE

Low-Cost, Easy-to-Use Teaching Materials

"The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say 'The children are now working as if I didn't exist.'"

- Maria Montessori


In many parts of rural Malawi, there are no schools, or they are too far away for small children to reach via walking. There's also a lack of trained preschool and nursery teachers. Given these circumstances, preschool children need a low-cost, easy-to-use teaching mechanism. This comes in the form of laminated flashcards. The flashcards require very little teaching and are adaptable to the child-to-child learning style inherent to Malawi (older children teaching the younger ones).

The initial prototype is a set of 40 flashcards priced at €8/pack. They can be used with no training by children and their parents. 


To adapt to COVID, we have set up flashcard libraries at water wells and mills where women and mothers spend their time. These libraries are managed by a preschool nursery volunteer.
