Aiming Higher in Malawi (added 13/07/16)
Staff and pupils have returned safely from the schools latest humanitarian visit to Malawi. All staff, current and former pupils succeeded in their objective to make a difference to the lives of those most in need. We visited numerous villiages, prisons, orphanages, partnership primary and secondary schools and child nursery settings and extended our support through offering much needed resources. We are proud to inform you that we were able to support many programmes while in Malawi. Our fundraising supported Sister Anna's insurmountable task of feeding and clothing thousands of people on a daily basis. Our ICT resources will enhance the delivery of the national curriculum at all levels, our hygiene packs for all prisoners will make their existence in extreme environments more bearable and young offenders will be able to undertake educational opportunities in rehabilitations centres due to the successful implementation of classrooms and the purchase of desks to facilitate effective learning and teaching. The changes that we observed from last years visit following our support was immense. The living conditions have improved for many as a result of our care and support. Our experiences this year will motivate and drive us forward in our challenge to continue to raise funds for the implemetation of St Margaret's Women's Refuge Centre. The trip was extremely humbling and reminded us all of our christian values and our committment to helping others.
