MLANGO supports school feeding projects in Malawi, one of the poorest countries of the world in eastern Africa. The children get porridge for free at school every day. For most of them it is the only (warm) meal they get at all. Many of them come to school without breakfast. School feeding therefore supports two aspects of their life: the are "lured" to go to school because they get something to eat. And it is easier to learn when one has eaten something.
Currently, we support 3 schools close to Mount Mulanje with in total about 2500 children in classes 1 to 8: they get a daily meal.
It is important for us, that parents and teachers organize the projects themselves. E.g. parents prepare and serve the porridge on their own. Our support is for the materials that have to be bought: the flour etc. Doing so, the people involved have a high identification with their (!) projects and they are highly motivated.
Mit nur 15 Euro kann ein Kind ein Jahr lang an jedem Schultag eine Mahlzeit bekommen, die seinen Bedarf an Nährstoffen, Vitaminen etc. deckt.
Auch infolge schlechter Ernten ist die Zahl der Schüler an den 3 Schulen in Nsanjama, Nkondezi und Mwangothaya inzwischen von 2500 auf mehr als 2800 gestiegen, Die Schulspeisung ist für zahlreiche Kinder die einzige Mahlzeit des Tages.
