What your donation will do
Each day ECRAD seeks to provide a daily nutritious meal to over 400 orphaned children.
To supplement what is produced by the farm, 250 additional bags of Maize (£15) and Beans(£35) are purchased each year to maintain the daily meal provision.
Essential medical care is covered by ECRAD whether that be a sticking plaster, medicine or doctors bills
There are many things needed to keep the school running each year.
A box of pens , a box of chalk, a flip chart, note pad and many more.
To give children the best opportunity in life a number of boys and girls are sponsored to go to secondary school.
This helps to keep them in education for longer and give them greater options for what they go on to do in life.
Primary education is free to children in Malawi.
ECRAD supports 18 primary teachers in the primary school with a roll of 960 children.
To provide long term sustainability for both food and income, a large Chicken population is part of making that possible.
Chickens provide food to ECRAD, reducing reliance on buying food in.
Chickens are also be sold into the local community and markets providing regular income.
Chicken manure helps to fertalise crops grown on the ECRAD farm
Only a few of the School classrooms have desks that the students can use.
Desks are necessary to raise the quality of the educational setting for our students and enable students to work much more effectively than sitting on the floor.
