Our Objectives

Achievements in 2007

School children
School children in Chambe

1. The construction of Mpala has commenced and is due to be commissioned in the new year.
2. The Orphan centre in Mozambique has commenced and the children have registered for tailoring and sports activities. The border regulations hindered the movement of necessary equipment from Malawi. However, we have established a supplier in Mozambique.
3. Our health care programme has continued to improve both the orphans’ and volunteers’ health. The nurse has been visiting the centres on a weekly basis ensuring that the children get examined, advised and treated.
4. The children are supplied with soap twice a month in order to ensure good hygiene.
5. All centres now have nursery classes and we conducted one week training for the nursery teachers on Early Childhood and Development in conjunction with the District Social Welfare Department using the UNICEF Government Child Development guidelines. The training involved Children Rights, working with disabled children, child-centred approach to
learning and language development.
6. All the centres with nursery classes are provided with Likuni Pala - a high protein porridge which promotes for growth.
7. The centres are now open on Saturdays to enable the children to get together for games and music. This prevents children from loitering around the villages and getting into mischief. It also alleviates the burden on the carers and guardians of feeding the children.
8. The feeding programme has improved the children’s health and reduced the rate of drop outs from school.
9. The skills training programme has enlightened and exposed the children to possible vocational training available after they complete secondary school. These skills can enable them to start up small enterprises later on in life.
10. The centres now are able to sell the products such as tin pails, watering cans and wooden doors and use the funds to finance small needs such as purchase of salt.
