Another Little Preschool

Another Little Preschool

30th March 2014: The area is under the tribal Chief Jessia Moyo. I don't know the village name. We are now heading for 40 such little centers of learning, maybe 37 0r 38 just now. There must be whole community involvement before we get involved. Training is for everyone...

A sorryful sight

A sorryful sight

24th March 2014: I'm sure this well was installed by some very well meaning people, probably of Christian origin, who sang, prayed and rejoiced with this community as a new pump was installed here. I figure this was installed in about 2000 or so, and maybe lasted...

4th March 2014: This is our pump maker, William. I went with him to a village in Dunduzu to look at some wells which needed new pumps. This one needed a new top so William got into action and mixed the concrete to make the slab. The people...

Having a go

Having a go

16th October 2013: This young man offered to be the first to have a go on the new pump. This was a very remote village about 35 km from Mzuzu. The chief came to Harisen to ask if W4Z could help with three pumps and here we were. The...

Harisen the Teacher

Harisen the Teacher

5th September 2013: In Wells for Zoë, Malawi, Harisen is the boss. He was our first employee, even before there was any real job. He was part-time, temporary and voluntary. He is a real boss, because he knows everything and can do everything. Here you see him in Salima,...

Arriving with water

Arriving with water

22nd June 2013: Another new well today in Doroba. The picture shows three little ones arriving from the new pumps with water on their heads. They seem happy with themselves as they have come about 400 metres instead of a long 2 Km to the river. Lives have...

New Village Preschool

New Village Preschool

13th June 2013: Casca and Florence were busy today as they seem to have visited five remote village communities with new preschool groups. The buildings vary but the enthusiasm remains: the enthusiasm of remote women, with little formal education to have education for their children. This idea has...

Irish Aid lauds our farm

Irish Aid lauds our farm

15th March 2013: Maybe Irish Aid didn't know it, but this is our farm. We bought it about this time last year for a group of amazing women to become a commercial, co-operative model farm. It is now run by 16 women and 6 men with the...

A newly formed Preschool

A newly formed Preschool

20th February 2013: Not much but it's a big leap for them! Children in this area of Malawi go to Primary School at the age of 6, like elsewhere in Malawi. But the problem is that by then boys may be doing a full day's work making...
