Patterson’s blog: Urgent help needed to maintain latrines

The floods that we experienced from this year’s cyclone have sadly brought about unprecedented damage to our buildings. We are in dire need of financial support to help maintain the toilets for both girls and boys. You can see in the picture below that the latrines have now become unsafe to use. Maintenance of some toilets require complete demolition of building roof and walls due to numerous cracking and rebuilding to make them safe. MOET has already started the demolition work this month so that we can build new walls from the foundations. However , the challenge here is that… Read More

Patterson’s blog: Food encourages pupils to continue with their education

This month is known as a very lean month in Malawi which means that hunger looms in most households.  This happens because there is always far much less food in reserves .This means that prices rise to their very highest, driven by the law of demand and supply. Unfortunately many poor households find their prices exorbitant.  .At MOET, the reserves went short too and as such we had to replenish with more food to sustain our School feeding program. School feeding has encouraged learners to remain at  school. By helping Moet, you are not just helping the orphans but… Read More

 
Patterson’s blog: Permaculture brings food and profits

The permaculture programme at Moet is an expression of hopes, dreams and values but also provides a very useful source of income.  There are three dams and one pond of fish on the site and this month, we have harvested the fish in one of the dams. The harvested fish was either sold to staff or eaten by some of the boarders at lunchtime with great relish.  The rain water in January and February has made the dams very full so there was a plentiful supply.  Read More

 
Patterson’s report: Fixed borehole brings new water

Moet had to stop using the borehole five months ago because it was broken. It is quite old as it was dug in 2003 and we have been using it ever since. The lack of a borehole has caused some problems because when the power goes off, the water pump stops working and there was no way to access the water. This was problem for the boarders in particular, who obviously on site all the time.  This month, we have been able to buy the much needed parts and the borehole is fixed.  We now have a alternative water supply… Read More

 
Patterson’s blog: Toothbrush gift leads to smiles all round

Members of a Dutch hygiene organisation have showed they were bristling with generosity when they gave toothbrushes to help children in Moet.  Esther Teunissen came to give the toothbrushes and toothpaste personally. The children were delighted to see  Esther again as she also visited MOET last year and wanted to help further. The Hygiene Club has 21 pupils involved and encourages learners to maintain good hygiene and sanitation to keep their bodies and homes or surrounding clean to prevent diseases.  Its mission is exactly the same as the hygiene club in Netherland which is why Esther was so interested… Read More
