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.
Mapereka ist die 4. und mit fast 1000 Kindern die zweitgrößte Schule, die von Mlango mit einer Schulspeisung unterstützt wird. Damit alle Kinder gleich große Portionen erhalten können, müssen auch gleich große Gefäße und Löffel bereitgestellt werden. Daher vielen Dank an alle, die dazu beigetragen haben.
