2016 has been another very interesting year for us, and we wish all of our students, staff members and frieds all over the world an even more prosperous 2017!

Future Nursery School Visit

Mangochi Orphan Education and Training (MOET) programmes are a source of inspiration for most of the educational institutions within and beyond its catchment area. Below you can see visitors from Future Nursery School which is about 15kms away from MOET. They came to here to learn on what makes it different from other schools.

The kids were taken around MOET campus, and fresh lemon grass tea from our gardens was served for them.

After a thorough exploration of the MOET surroundings, the visitors gathered for an informal briefing.

Sports Day

The development of skills is one of the activities implemented at MOET and sports form part of the skills to be imparted for thedevelopment of the children. Below are pictures of different sporting activities showcased on the MOET sports day this year.

“ON YOUR marks!…” The girls are getting ready for the marathon, determined to cover the total of 6kms. The day’s weather was good for the sporting activities and as a precautionary measure, a rescue vehicle was used to follow the group.

MOET pupils are discovering their potential in sports.

Volunteers

 MOET programmes attract the services of volunteers for them to gain experience, and for us to make use of them in our academic and extension work. Johannes Lau is one of the enthusiastic volunteers, who, until recently, taught at MOET.

Johannes Lau makes a symbolic speech on the beaches of Lake Malawi in Cape Maclear. MOET and its staff usually arrange a farewell party as a way of appreciating the contribution of volunteers.

Secondary School Students

MOET conducts coaching to secondary school students every summer holidays. This helps them keep their heads fresh and focus more on what they aim to achieve by the end of their academic years.

Having discovered the importance of books in education, secondary school graduates are busy re-arranging books and decorating the library as they are waiting for their examination results. This helps setting an example to primary school students to love their books even more.
