PLEASE HELP US TO MAKE OUR DREAM COME TRUE!
The Jacaranda School for Orphans offers education to orphans in Malawi whose parents mostly died of AIDS as well as to children living in poor conditions. It cares for their basic needs such as nutrition, medical treatment and acommodation.
The AIDS rate in Malawi is extremely high at around 12% of the population.
Besides education for free (primary and secondary school), daily food, medical treatment and spiritual welfare the school donates schooluniforms and all neccessary school equipment. Information about HIV is an important and big subject at Jacaranda School.
Furthermore, Jacaranda offers sports, art and music as well as agricultural activities. The home support guarantees every pupil a home and financial support for the poorest families.
We, Naomi and Tobi will do a voluntary social year at the Jacaranda School for Orphans. In order to make our dream come true we need YOUR support!
The Federal Ministry for economic cooperation and development is financing 75% of our voluntary service with their program "weltwaerts". The remaining part needs to be financed by the organisation sending the volunteers. Being that the NGOs can’t afford to pay for all volunteers, we have to collect donations to support them.
Please help us make our dream come true! Every donation is welcome!
In giving money you help us and further generations of volunteers to go for their voluntary service. Us volunteers work in a social, cultural or ecological project. With our voluntary service we make an effort for the project’s work. Vice versa we can learn a lot from the people in Malawi, can gain a new perspective of the globe and push a direct and worldwide exchange about the future and real teamwork.
As a sponsor you will be the one to make it happen. You will support the individual development of us as volunteers on our way to cultural openness, tolerance and common visions of the future for „one world“.
With your donation you will sponsor the intercultural dialogue and the international understanding. You will help to overcome prejudices.
We would like to thank all our sponsors by letting you know about all new blogs during our stay in Malawi.
So if you make a donation, please let us know, so we can add your E-mail adress to our list. Thus, we will keep you in the loop about all that is happening in that year in Malawi.
