As communicated in the January 2018 Report, National Reading Programs were introduced by Malawi’s Ministry of Education.  MOET is in full support of the program and as a result, in February, library services for senior students have been revisited. Senior students are now permitted to visit the MOET library on a daily basis. MOET takes pride in ensuring that books are available for them as needed.… Read More

 
February 2018 Update – Social Interaction through Manual Work

MOET, as an organisation, not only provides orphans with an education. It also prepares them to be self-motivated and reliant. To achieve this, there has to be a conducive environment for social interaction between students, teachers and all support staff. To facilitate such an environment, the annual organised manual work day was held, where staff and pupils interacted. This year, the function took place on February 1st. The day was a big success with activities consisting of tree planting, weed slashing, general cleanup.… Read More

 
February 2018 Update – Nursery Beds Establishment at MOET

MOET established an irrigation system. This was a good opportunity to show the students the advantages of using growing techniques that conserve soil and water. They were also taught that mulched nursery bed preserve moisture and enough sunlight for seed germination and the growth of tender plants. The demonstration provided the children with hand-on skills of keeping their soil resources valuable for their livelihoods.Read More

 
February 2018 Update – Instilling Love of Education

MOET emphasises the importance of instilling the love of education among pupils. This is a key secret to future independence of the children. During the food scarcity month of February, when produce is not yet ready, pupils stay away from school due to lack of food. This was the reason for establishing the school feeding program in some schools in Malawi. Recognising the problem, MOET had to make sure that pupils are well fed as soon as they arrive at school during the month. The picture below are pupils lining up for food before they get into their classes.… Read More

 
February 2018 Update – Arts & Drawing Club Trip to Lake Malawi Museum

MOET pupils belong to different clubs of their choice according to their talents, interests and skills. MOET encourages this kind of extra-curricular activity because it can bring out the various talents hidden in children. The Arts and Drawing Club is one such club. During the month, the club, led by two teachers who are also a patron and a matron of the group, made a visit to the Lake Malawi Museum to see artistic artifacts being stored in them. The Museum is found at Mangochi Boma. Therefore, apart from learning, the trip was also a refreshing change of scenery for… Read More

 
February 2018 Update – MOET Guardians Interface Meeting in support of Quality Education

Quality education demands support from all the involved stakeholders of a school, such as education authorities, teachers and parents/guardians. Realising that most of the pupils from junior classes lose their text books, MOET organised an interface meeting with guardians to discuss the need to help pupils take care of their books that they receive at the school. Parents/guardians acknowledged that this happens mostly during the rainy season where books are lost due to leaking houses. The Director insisted that parents should do more to protect the scarce books from being damaged in any way, where possible.  Meanwhile, MOET has resolved… Read More

 
February 2018 Update – Small Economic Business

MOET provides orphans with materials to support their academic studies. This support comes from friends, donors and well-wishers. Recognising the unpredictability of donor support and the need to drive towards self-sustainability, MOET has implemented small enterprises within the community. The idea was adopted by MOET to initiate some income-generating activity. A shelter is being constructed close to the tarmac road, and will be used to sell vegetables. … Read More

 
Computer Classes – by Bernd Möllmann

One of our wonderful (current) volunteers, Bernd Möllmann, shares a yet another wonderful post, full of pictures. This time, he looks back on a memorable second week week with MOET: “Hello, During my second week at MOET School, I’ve experienced many different things. I took part in the school lessons, participated at the Sports Program on Thursday and got a short introduction to the Vocational Skills Program in the afternoon classes. In between, we organised the computer room and started a new computer class, not only for the learners, but also for the teachers.” Below are some pictures of Bernd and… Read More

 
January 2018 Update- Security House Construction

Keeping the MOET premises secure from theft is very important. Therefore, the institution employs watchmen to hover around the premises at nighttime. During the day, they are stationed at the main gate. Previously, these guards were reliant upon the shade of a tree that is fairly close to the entrance. However, MOET has decided that they should be strategically positioned directly at the main gate. This way, the watchmen are vigilant to all visitors and persons entering and exiting the premises. In light of this, a Security Building is now under construction.… Read More

 
January 2018 Update- Kitchen and Stores Maintenance

MOET’s Kitchen is one of the oldest buildings on the campus. Its old age is visible from cracks developing on its walls. This is due to the softness of its base. In January, MOET carried out a maintenance work to reinforce the building. There are a few other buildings that are developing small cracks, but not to the same extent.… Read More
