How COVID is impacting MOET

The pandemic has impacted everyone across the globe in some way and here at MOET, it is no different. For many of us, education was and is a given, but Coronavirus has meant exams are being postponed or cancelled and makeshift homeschooling has become a reality.  It was with great sadness that MOET had to wave goodbye to Thomas, the school’s current volunteer from Germany. Thomas was very disappointed to have to cut his trip short and he is planning to return soon. Everyone loved having Thomas there and he was making a real difference to the school and children’s… Read More

 
In a time of uncertainty, some positive news

It has been a busy few months as usual at MOET and although there is always lots to do, we are always making great progress. Here is an update on what we have been up to.  New skills Mangochi Orphan Education and Training (MOET) aim to provide vocational skills training to children to help them become self-reliant economically in future. With an increased number of students gaining interested in sewing, MOET bought 4 new sewing machines to add to the existing 6.  It is great to see the growing appetite to learn practical skills alongside academic studies. This wouldn’t be… Read More

 
Student Nutrition

  The cost of living especially to rural Malawians is a real challenge. Food prices including Maize have increased making it not affordable for many of the families of our pupils. To ensure the nutritional needs of the students are met, MOET has changed its school feeding program to make sure that children are fed before and after they finish classes for the day. This is vital as many students do not go home at lunchtime as their families cannot afford to feed them.  We are very thankful to The Competition and Fair Trading Commission who supported us with food… Read More

If you have any books that you would like to donate, please do let us know. … Read More

 
January report: A-maize-ing harvest boosted by irrigation and planning

Moet has an irrigation scheme where a number of crops such as tomatoes and maize are grown. The school garden has been boosted by the rains from last year. It continues to prove a great way for the children to learn about farming and planning. In fact, we often find that our crops are ready before local farms because of the planning and the irrigation system that we have built.  We continue to learn about permaculture on a daily basis, but using our resources wisely is something we are very proud of. … Read More

December update- Building for the future

As the holidays are almost upon us, thoughts at Moet have turned to the building work that we are hoping to complete in 2020 and the great work that has already started.  Here’s a summary of all the work that we have been doing with your kind donations.   Better sanitation  The previous flooding that we experienced at MOET at the beginning of this year almost weakened all toilet structures and threatened water and sanitation problems. We appreciate the timely support from The Spear Family who came  to our rescue in helping putting up toilet structures that will stand the test… Read More

 
November update from our volunteer Thomas- Moet’s agricultural classes

Agricultural School  As MOET is an agricultural school, it puts a special emphasis  on teaching and training the learners the ways of agriculture and even permaculture. That is the reason why the standard six class of Mr. Mlenga went to the school gardens today and had a lesson of agriculture there to combine theoretical information with some first hand experience. Little learner’s expertise  On our way there, one little boy walking right next to me already told me the names of almost all plants on our way and even how to take care of them. The learners expertise when it comes to the issue… Read More
