With funding from Child Survival in Malawi, MOET had a two day Permaculture training for youth (school leavers) around the school. The participating youth are part and parcel of MOET programs. In November they also attended a training conducted by The Scout Association of Malawi.  They are a group established to work with MOET in youth programs.

These beds are useful to households with less growing space and they are transferable when moving houses

A tree seedling for  medicine or fruits to every participant. Go with it, plant it and care for it, then enjoy the fruits!

Appreciating the beauty of nature on MOET forest. From a bare ground some ten years ago. MOET now has beautiful forest with nature trails,  that allow people to walk through and see beehives that have been sparsely scattered in this bush. Rare species of game like guinea fowl are easily found at MOET.
