Printer, Projector and Medication. Help from far and near – read about visitors to MOET in Patterson’s latest quarterly Update.
New Volunteer – Karin from Sweden brings teaching skills and printer
The month continued with the unexpected arrival of a new volunteer: Karin, a professional primary school teacher from Sweden. She stayed in Mangochi with her husband for a few months and came to MOET three times a week using a minibus! She helped us with new teaching skills in English Grammar and Social/ Environmental Skills in Standard 7.
At her last visit with her husband, she left some nice games for the children and helped us financially with the means to buy a new printer. We thank her a lot for both, the time and the gifts she gave to MOET!
Solon Foundation – Doug brings educational materials and a projector
A few weeks ago, another much-appreciated donation was given to us by Doug Funk (from the “Solon Foundation”). Firstly, he provided us with a lot of educational software and after we asked that we do not know how to use it with the children in the classroom, he spontaneously got a projector from his car for us. Now our learners can enjoy very new ways of learning!
MOET Cares – nurse from Koche Hospital bringing medication for Bilharzia
Here at MOET, we do not care solely for the education of our children, but also for other important aspects of their lives like their health. Many of our children go to the lake very frequently for washing or bathing, although some of the areas of Lake Malawi away from the beaches of the lodges and hotels pose a risk of contracting Billharzia to them. Since this illness remains largely untreated in the most of the villages, we have invited a nurse from adjacent Koche Private Hospital to give out adjusted medication to all children according to their weight and size.
