Progress report for GlobalGiving


The GlobalGiving Funding project was initiated in Malawi, in Chingale area of Zomba District, in the year 2007. The overall goal of the project is to enable poor households, including women and HIV/AIDS affected and infected to live a better life with nutritious food on the table and money in their pockets. The first phase targeted primary schools with the idea to improve the educational achievements of children, in particular girls from poor and food-insecure families. Children from poor households often drop out from schools mainly because of hunger hence the introduction of school feeding programs. The project assists in constructing ponds, stock the ponds with fish and use the fish into the existing school feeding program; and with the income from sales of fish seed the schools can buy teaching and learning materials.

Following the success of the sensitization and planning meetings that were done in the first phase, the project had received an overwhelming positive response. The first four ponds (300m2 each) at Ntanangala Primary School have been a nucleus of knowledge by many surrounding schools. There are many study visits made to the school every school term. Three schools immediately after the rainy season (February) started their own ponds.
