… and giving children a perspective – through education
Since its foundation in 2003, the Christian Liebig Foundation (CLF) has been active to promote a better future through education in Malawi. In this small Southeast African country, which ranks 170th in the HDI index, primary schools, in particular, are being built, expanded or existing schools renovated.
In addition to the construction of a large secondary school with a girls’ dormitory, CLF also supports many educational projects. The association awards sponsorships to individual needy girls who could not afford a place in a girls’ dormitory without support. The best secondary school graduates can also apply for a scholarship to start a course of study or vocational training.
In 2007, CLF extended its activities to Mozambique for several years.
The five-year project “Millenniumsdorf Mabote” in cooperation with the Deutsche Welthungerhilfe e.V. (German Agro Action) aimed to reduce the hunger of around 1,000 residents, to implement general primary school education, to reduce child mortality and AIDS mortality, and to ensure ecological sustainability.
In addition, a bakery was built for the education of disadvantaged children. Mozambique is also one of the poorest countries in the world, ranked 181th in the HDI index.
