With permaculture and new classrooms against hunger and lack of education
The Nkuyu primary school is a perfect example. For a forgotten place in the country with many needs. With school buildings that have never really seen good times. With a committed community and great ideas about healthy self-sufficiency for children and parents based on permaculture.
However, there is a lack of financial means to implement urgently needed measures and to advance the innovative ideas. The good news: This has now come to an end.
Finally there is help for the committed community
A lot of green reveals itself to the arriving person, if one has successfully mastered the dusty and bumpy approach. The roads are difficult to pass in this remote area, near Malawi’s second largest city Blantyre. A few scattered buildings become visible between the bushes. It seems almost idyllic.
But appearances are deceptive. The currently lush nature is evidence of many rainfalls. The buildings reveal their true “face” as you approach: run-down, crumbling bricks, cracks in the walls and floors, no benches or tables in the classrooms.
