Thanthwe Christian Mission Primary School was opened in September 2018 in Chiwaya Village, on the boundary of Blantyre Rural and Thyolo District. The School is known locally as Thanthwe 2 as there is another Thanthwe School in the Blantyre Rural District.

The School is a Government Mission School, built and overseen by Achinyamata A Cholinga (Youth With a Mission), a Christian Religious Organisation in Malawi and run by the The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. The Government oversees the educational processes, funds and manages and deploys teachers.

Up until 2018, Chiwaya village had no school and students had to travel up to 7km for their lessons. Now 561 learners from the village are able to be educated locally.
