Lusangazi farm pine tree seedlings

1 million Trees

1 Million trees. In 365 days. That is the goal of the organisation Wells for Zoë. There could be many reasons for doing so. Global warming. Changing the micro-climate. Reducing erosion. All are good reasons. But the main reason is pension funds. A tree that has been growing...

Magret, Cristina & Ellen on their way to visit a preschool

My need to know what Everyone does!

A good thing about being here is that everyday there is something new. When I came here I wasn't sure about how I could help. I imagined helping in the farm or with the preschools everyday. Once here from the first day we started meeting...

A chaotic summary of thoughts

...unlike the parking lot at Shoprite Mall, Mzuzu! Yup. Malawi. Not what I expected but what I believe should be told as well... Before I came here I had this "image" in my mind... Houses with straw roofs and no access to water and no cars...

Secondary School Luwinga

The girls from Luwinga Secondary School were listening with attention to an excerpt of “The Three Little Pigs”. It is a book I loved when I was a child, that talked about effort and how to be successful in life. Guess what they thought about the...

Cristina & Kevin arrive in Malawi

We arrived in Mzuzu on a Friday night coming from Tanzania. Harisen picked us up with a friendly smile full of energy and you can not imagine how nice that welcoming was at darkness after 18 hours of bus travel. An exhausting journey with music...

Sanitary Pads

7th August 2018: Most times I'm tough as nails because when dealing with Malawi one has to be. But when it comes to our women and girls, the tears can flow. When I realised that many of the 262 girls we support in Secondary school had no knickers,...
