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.
In Mapereka werden die ersten Mahlzeiten nach zunächst noch provisorischer Zubereitung bereits ausgegeben - sehr zur Freude der Kinder. Es können dank der Spenden schon ein Teil der Teller und Löffel besorgt werden, damit auch gewährleistet ist, dass alle Kinder gleiche Portionen erhalten.
