New Area 11 Breakfast Club

One of the things I was worried about before leaving Malawi, was the Breakfast Club. Although we put various legacy measures in place, including a library managed by one of the parents, the logistics of feeding 30 kids was always going to difficult. Mainly because it is very time consuming, which I found out the hard way when Dens and Regie (“BClub” Co-founders) completed their placements and returned home.

Well, I’m super delighted to report that the Breakfast Club is continuing!

Thanks to 2 fellow VSO volunteers who have recently relocated to Area 11, Lilongwe.

Nyack, who has moved into my room in the same house as Robin, is taking care of breakfast on Saturday mornings. Interestingly, he’s observed that it’s the youngest kids who remember to wash hands before eating! #sambamanja

Catherine is taking care of the weekly after school classes. You can see her own blog post about this here.

Thank you guys! We really are so happy to see this 🙂
