Every year, a UK based charity called the Friends of Malawi Association (FOMA) donate to numerous small projects. Mainly those started and managed by serving VSO volunteers.
The Area 11 Breakfast Club was lucky to have received some funding from FOMA in late 2013 – link to their website here. It’s very interesting to read about all the different projects currently happening all over Malawi.
So far, we’ve used some of our funds to purchase educational materials like a whiteboard, calculators and dictionaries for use in the weekly classes every Thursday. With the remaining funds, I’m currently working on building a small library for all the local kids. So they have easy access to suitable children’s books, which I can’t explain just how rare and precious they are here.
