These school pupils are singing a song of thanks to Medulawi, a Dutch charity which collaborates with Nchima Trust to support children through their education. Medulawi has made a long term commitment and the school in this video is first class with respect to its results, especially for girls. The project is also supported by Sibford School in Oxfordshire.
These students are singing a song of thanks to the Apeldoorn (Holland) Soroptimist Society who very generously gave sufficient funding to train them at Amelika Teacher’s Training College run by DAPP, a very good NGO with which we work.
Nchima Trust received a very generous donation from the Apeldoorn (Holland) Soroptimist Society which enabled us to sponsor 14 girls through Amelika Teacher Training College run by an NGO called DAPP. The girls are singing a song of thanks (improvised at the time) to the Soroptimist Society. The College is first class and really works hard to design its curriculum around local resources available and also takes a very holistic approach to education which includes not only academic subjects but practical subjects such as agriculture, health and family planning etc
A video in which Jeannette Heikens interviews some teachers who were sponsored by Nchima Trust throughout their training. The video shows some of the challenges faced by teachers in Malawi from resources to class sizes.
This short video was taken while exploring a remote area in Malawi for suitable borehole drilling. These young boys are playing plastic pipes cut to different lengths, making music under their own direction and composed by themselves.
