All 42 Girls finish Secondary School

Diet

9th June 2018: Feeding all our girls is a big job. The diet is simple Nsima: a boiled maize flour almost 100% carbohydrate Tomato and Cabbage relish And either beans or small fish Regularly it is their main meal for a day or two. Not much of a choice, but hunger is...

Netball, after a fashion

2nd June 2018: You will know that we support 260 Girls in Secondary School. We send transport to bring as many as we can in to Saturday Classes on their Curriculum. Some come from up to thirty kilometres away and even before we pick them some may...

Lusungu

22nd May 2018: This is Lusungu, one of our Girl Child Students who completed her MSCE last year and qualified for the prestigious University, Chancery College. But sadly as an orphan with no one in the world, she doesn't have fees. We have employed her since her...

New Blackboard

16th May 2018: Most Blackboards in Malawi are like this; plastered and painted black (with blackboard paint). This is Peter Zulu and he is very skilled in this area. He does most of our building work. There'll be more happy people on Saturday. What are interactive whiteboards anyway!!!!!...

A little break

Guavas

3rd April 2018: They come to do regular classes and have a little fun, but they are exposed to horticulture as well. We have a large space around the Centre with lots of plants growing so they can learn how to feed themselves. Here they are picking Guavas:...

Mathematics on Saturday

24th March 2018: Concentration in a Maths class. These girls have travelled miles for this. They attend schools up to 30 km distant from the centre. We collect them but many still have to walk long distances through fields, forests and even through rivers to get to...

Hostel and Classrooms

Braving the elements

10th March 2018: Even though it was raining heavily so many girls made their way to class. They work so hard to learn. Such determination would put the rest of us to shame. Even though we collect them our transport is mostly open....

Meal Time

3rd March 2018: We support 258 girls in Secondary school. As a result of seriously overcrowded classrooms (up to and over 100 sometimes), poor buildings, inadequately trained and paid teachers and much more, we decided 4 years ago to collect these girls from far distant places each...
