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: 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 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

 
Patterson’s blog: Donated cycles help pupils to get to school.

Donated cycles are helping pupils make their way to school and benefit from further educational opportunities. Children who are selected to attend the Community Day Secondary Schools can sometime find it difficult to get to the school as they are too far to walk to. This means they sometimes stay at home and then end up missing out on their education.  If they do end up walking, they are often too tired and worn out from the walking in order to concentrate.  A bike can travel four times the speed of a person which means that two hours of hard… Read More

 
Headmaster’s blog: Girls excel in carpentry classes

In a bid to continue to shape the lives of vulnerable and under-privileged learners into being bread winners of the future, MOET also provide vocational skills development and training to pupils.  Currently, performance of pupils in Computer Science has been encouraging. We also have a good number of girls who are doing exceptionally well in carpentry, a career which is mostly dominated by boys. It is really encouraging for Moet to try to do more in helping to fight gender inequalities.  Three senior classes of 5, 6 and 7 attend the vocation skills development and training programs.  These are the… Read More

 
Headmaster’s blog: Library proven to accelerate pupil progress at Moet

Recent media attention has been placed on the importance of libraries with the release of the film about Malawian engineer William Kamkwamba who taught himself how to build electric windmills after borrowing books from his school library. Thanks to your kind donations, Moet is lucky enough to have a library. This is a facility which is missing in most government schools that are in the area and could lead to Moet children learning the same skills as “The boy who harnessed the wind. ”  A recent meeting of Primary Education Advisors ( PEAs) took place at the school where many… Read More
