We have kept the entry costs low so every effort to raise funds to support our programme is appreciated. £1,500 is our target and will go towards providing for a full time teacher at the Shine Village project.
Educating children in Malawi According to the United Nations research, almost half of Malawi’s 5.9 million children under the age of 5 are malnourished and for most children school starts at the age of six – or sometimes even later. With families preoccupied with the search for food, children are often kept at home to work on the land. Children, who miss out on pre-school interactions, find it very difficult to adapt to the school environment. Lacking social skills and a limited vocabulary, they quickly fall behind in the large classes, and subsequently, perform below their potential throughout their school-life. With classes numbering between 150-200 children often give up on their education before their 12th birthday.
It costs £20 a month to transform a child’s early years and annual sponsorship ensures a child receives the foundational pre-school education which is essential to prepare them for primary school. Children who attend pre-school find it easier to socialise with their peers and teachers when they start primary school.
