What is FOMOE?

We are a registered charity, based in the UK, which raises funds to advance the education, relieve poverty and sickness and enhance the preservation and protection of good health of children in Malawi who are orphaned, in particular but not exclusively by helping to fund a school known as  ‘Mangochi Orphans Education and Training’ (MOET)

Why was FOMOE set up?

Since MOET School started in 1999 it has been mainly reliant on just a few generous benefactors.

MOET School in the early days

In addition to this there have been 4 people who have been raising funds in their own communities in the UK independently – all connected to the school in their own way.  Early in 2010 they came together to form a charity.

FOMOE was set up to bring those efforts together in a co-ordinated way and to help put the school on a more secure financial footing by widening the donor base.

This should enable MOET School to not only carry on doing its good work but also to develop new initiatives to enhance the lives and futures of its pupils and the communities they live in.

Please feel free to browse around and learn about MOET School – the children and the projects.

What is special about FOMOE?

100% of all donations goes to the end cause – MOET School.

What is special about MOET School?

  • Smaller class sizes enable a much-needed focus on pastoral care
  • Vocational training for older children to prepare them for the outside world
  • Strong sense of sustainability with agricultural projects (Permaculture) and natural medicine (Anamed)
  • Educating communities around where the children live (in crop growing, natural medicine and HIV awareness
  • MOET has been providing one meal a day to pupils since it first began 10 years ago. When times are hard this may be the only food the children get.  It is maize-based but supplemented with food from the school’s vegetable gardens, when supplies allow.

Ultimately it is the dedication of the teachers and children which make MOET School so special.

The school follows the Malawian Ministry of Education’s curriculum but receives no government funding – it is a registered Trust, totally dependent on donations from individuals and organisations.
