The project "Ecological Ovens" is going well, since February, we built another 2 ovens for two Eritrean families. Throughout today we got to 10 ecological ovens made.
The importance of this project, which improves the quality of life and the power of Eritrean families, is also evident from the conferences held at Expo where they talked about ecological ovens Mogogo and their benefits. An estimated 50 million people daily use the simple traditional clay ovens to cook Injera, a spongy cake of mixed grain cooked on a large flat black clay under a metal cover that for its shape resembles a hat.
The innovation of the "Ecological Ovens" notable advantages: the walls of the oven are thermally insulated, the combustion chamber is ceramic, closed and protected, it provides for a system of introduction of combustion air and discharge of the ashes and the pipe of uptake of combustion fumes. This reduces the time and, not least, the damage to health by channeling the fumes from burning.

We’ll keep you posted on the development of the project, thanks for your support!

Well and reservoir in operation

Our second mission to monitor the project has just ended. Our volunteers were able to see the progress of the "Dayly bread farm".
As regards the agricultural program, the first crop of peanuts has been made. The crop was plentiful, a portion was used to integrate the food of children's center, another was transformed into oil and sold at the local market. Proceeds from this sale were used to cover part of the cost of the Child Care Centre.


The construction of well and reservoir is finished; unfortunately the construction of henhouse have suffered delays, due to the approval of the estimated costs by the manufacturer. A few days ago it was signed the budget and began production of materials needed for construction. They were also purchased other farm animals: 500 chickens and 100 rabbits.

We expect to start construction works soon, we will keep you updated!
Thanks to all benefactors who donated and who believed in this project.

First visit of the physiatrist in the village

Since the beginning of the project Marina (our project manager in Malawi) has been
going to the hospital in Mangochi with the children who needs support.

The physiatrist of the Mangochi Hospital recently visited the village near Namwera the village where the majority of our children come from. He visited them in a hut built by a volunteer of Tyende Pamodzi group. This malawian volunteer (one of the few non-HIV positive), wanted to build this hut just to make it available to all those people who cannot go to a doctor or hospital.

Marina proposed to the doctor to go to the village once a month for visits; not in the hut, but in the lobby of the headquarters of the group. On the first day he went there he visited 50 children!
There are seven children who have started the rehabilitation, but there would be more.
Not everyone can be subjected to physiotherapy, but many require aids.

Marina is considering the possibility of involving the mothers of children in the post-rehabilitation, to prevent the interruption of therapy after leaving the Feed the Children centre. The collaboration of the mothers is essential to a successful rehabilitation.

In Namwera the physiotherapy service doesn’t exist any more and this fact forces people to go to the Mangochi Hospital, which is now overcrowded.
