The past year has been a year of growth, but also one in trying to uphold the high standards of Malawi Children’s Village. Gracious Secondary School now has 460 students. Florence, our outreach village coordinator and AIDS Educator is away getting her certificate in social work. The School-to-School project has built two teacher’s houses at Mauni and another is projected to be completed in spring 2015. Teachers have received computer training and village volunteers – the back bone of the MCV program – were able to get new bicycles through a Rotary donation. We have had numerous volunteers who have taught, assisted in the villages, and worked on water projects. We thank them for having given their time and talent.
Without donations there would be no village house repairs, food, secondary school and university tuition, health care, bicycles for volunteers, or improved education to name just a few of the benefits MCV has been able to provide. We have donors who give both monthly and annually and we so appreciate your continued support. If you are a new donor, welcome to Malawi Children’s Village. If you are sustaining again, thank you.
Whatever and whenever you give is helpful to the orphans and other vulnerable children!
