Establishing lifelong learning: rooted in knowledge, enriched by experience
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 has been our partner school for a number of years and we have enjoyed regular communication from the school in the form of letters and photos.The children here at Alexandra are really excited about being able to help their friends in Africa. We enjoy supporting the school in the form of monetary donations, clothes, footballs, PE Kits, letters, pictures and stationary.

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.
