This project will include running a daily feeding point, giving children access to free education, and providing them with basic health care. The project will help the most vulnerable children in Malawi.
Full Project Summary
There are 1 million orphaned children in the country of Malawi and many of them have lost their parents to the disease HIV/AIDS. In a rural village called Mngwere live children who struggle every day to find food or receive medicine when they get sick. School is only a distant dream for them. With this project, we aim to give hope back to these children by providing them with a hot and healthy meal each day, medicine when they are sick and a free place in the local school. We hope that by doing this, these children will grow up to be healthy, happy people who will work hard to help other people around them. 25 Children will be benefited (as direct beneficiaries), but there is benefit to the wider community (family members, etc) - potentially 150 people. The donations needed of $6000 is based on $20 per child, per month over a 12 month period.
