Together we nurture the genius in everyone
Our partner school in Malawi
African Vision Malawi has been helping children and vulnerable people since 2005.
M'lumbwira Primary school in Malawi is supported by African Vision Malawi Charity. It is our partner school and has been for some years. Over the years we have sent money, clothes, footballs, PE Kits, letters, pictures and stationary. They have sent us letters, photos and visitors.
This week we have been talking to the children in assembly about their friends in M'lumbwira school and how we can be friends to people who we do not know personally.
The children in M'lumbwira school love letters from our children, they love to know about their lives, their homes, their hobbies and their families.
We have asked Alexandra children to write a letter in their own time if they can find time. We suggest that they address them as "Dear friend"
We are also collecting small donations of maybe 20p from each child at Alexandra.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to our collection. We have received some lovely letters and raised £135.95 to send out to our partner school.
Thank you in advance for your support of our partner school.

We are working closely with a school in Malawi.
The children here at Alexandra are really excited about being able to help their friends in Africa.

Hello and greetings from Malawi, the warm heart of Africa!
After months of planning I can hardly believe we are nearly at the end of our school partnership visit to Malawi. It is a beautiful country and the Malawians are delightful people who greet us warmly wherever we go. It is such a poor country with so many problems but it is good to see progress in helping people to become more self sufficient - check out Sam's Training Village on the AVM website - it is amazing!
In the last three weeks we have been round all nineteen partner schools, presenting the packs you prepared for them on GROWING and giving out badly needed stationery items such as pencils, pens and exercise books. To us these are such basic items but to very poor children in our rural areas they mean such a lot. If you could see the looks of delight on their faces and hear their cheers you would be reminded just how worthwhile the partnerships are, and when we presented each school with a football I am surprised you couldn't hear their cheers back in the UK!
This year I was accompanied by Gaynor Cook and Kay Lennox who each brought five suitcases of beautiful blankets and jumpers knitted by elderly UK residents. These were distributed to orphans and vulnerable children in fourteen centres around our area and will help to keep children warm during the winter months ( which although still hot during the day can be very cold during the night and early morning).
Lastly I would like to say a big "THANK YOU" for taking the time to prepare packs of letters, useful information and resources for your partner school. As always, your packs were received gratefully, with thanks and real interest. Thank you also for your financial contributions towards stationery and school uniform but most of all, thank you for caring.
With very best wishes from all your friends in Malawi.
Malawi Collection - 'Growing' for Mlumbwira June 2016
We are collecting for our partner school in Malawi. The school are in desperate need of stationery. Several children share a pencil and exercise book because they can't afford to buy their own. Basic items that we take for granted like pens, pencils, rulers and rubbers can really help their learning ( and always cause great excitement when they are presented).
Please send in any of the following items before Thursday 12th May.
STATIONARY- new pencils, pens, note pads, rulers etc
SEEDS - If you could include a few packs of vegetable seeds they are always appreciated and it is interesting to see if our seeds will grow in the very different climate / soil conditions in Malawi.
CHANGE - Please bring any loose change you have to the school office.
These small items mean so much to the children in Malawi. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
