Patterson’s Latest Quarterly Update – lots of construction at MOET in the Summer

Nursery Kitchen It is already 1 year now, since this blog has been started in July 2015. Many projects have been started, continued and even finished during that time, especially in the last few months. A completely new nursery building has been planned and constructed in just a year’s time thanks to generous donations from several individuals through FOMOE. It will provide a safe, friendly and joyful environment to the youngest ones at MOET as soon as it opens when the next term starts in September! Although the nursery with all its beautiful children-friendly drawings on the walls, its beds… Read More

 
Volunteer Johannes meets Piers Agget from hit pop band Rudimental in Malawi

Johannes writes:       Another highlight of my stay was meeting a group of asungus in front of Mangochi’s “People’s Metro” supermarket, who, as I learnt later were the famous UK band Rudimental and a group of other artists playing at a festival in CapeMaclear 2 days later. Seeing the possibility of avoiding an overcrowded truck, I asked them if they could take me up to my school, what they – like any western band with a couple of UK/US no. 1 hits probably would have done – accepted. Piers Agget from Rudimental and me … Read More

 
Volunteer Johannes teaches MOET children about Malawian Parliament and Dinosaurs

Johannes writes: With the beginning of my third and last term at MOET, I decided to diversify my teaching in Standard 6 a bit, adding the subject “English Language” to my responsibility. Previously I had just taught “English Grammar”, which is really important for the children, but rather unexciting to teach. My new subject gave me a lot more freedom concerning the choice of topics, educational games and the use of our new projector. The most exciting lessons were definitely those about the Malawian Parliament, in which the children learnt about the way a parliament works, read some simplified speeches… Read More

 
ROBIN & FRIENDS WALK FOR MOET EMERGENCY FOOD PROGRAMME – AUGUST 2016

In April of this year a State of Emergency was declared in Malawi following disastrous droughts so we are initiating an emergency food program to provide an extra meal every day for the children at MOET School for 6 months.  This programme costs £2,500 and it was all covered (and more) by the walk done by Robin and friends (including Cara the Dog) on 28th August. Clarendon Way is a 26 mile (marathon) walk from Winchester to Salisbury Cathedral. For more details see  https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/robinclarke1 Read More

 
Volunteer Rowan’s 3rd week at MOET – August 2016

My third week at MOET was mostly filled by a football camp at Cape MacClear with learners from Standards 6-8 who make up the school football team. Departure on Monday was to be at 1300, but upon arrival slightly before this hour I was greeted by the sight of Patterson driving away with his pick-up sans any children or footballs. He told me he was picking up a few things and I should return at 1500 when everything should be ready. As is the way in Malawi, even come 1500, even the postponed departure was still very far away as… Read More

 
Volunteer Rowan’s 2nd week at MOET – August 2016

It was all fun and games for Rowan in his second week at MOET: This week saw me making my teaching debut at MOET, as I was assigned to teach English and Geography to MOET graduates who return in the summer holidays for supplementary secondary lessons (free of charge). My first English lesson was on modifiers; of which according to the grammar book I referenced there are three types; positive, comparative and superlative. I found it initially difficult to gauge the class (Form 4 next year, the final year of secondary), but was soon given an explanation as to why… Read More

 
18 year old Rowan volunteers for a month at MOET July-Aug 2016

Rowan’s first week and first impressions…… I’ve just completed the first week of my month in Malawi where I’m at MOET school, doing some work with returning secondary students and some football coaching later on in my stay.  Before leaving London I had been under the impression my journey to Malawi was a long one;  a total of about 24 hours; but on the plane to South Africa my neighbour was a Canadian architect travelling to the Gambia. His journey duration dwarfed mine. He had had to fly from Vancouver to London before heading to Africa with me; when he… Read More
