As promised, we are happy to share the documentary (22min) produced by Chanco TV about our eLearning Centre. A number of people were interviewed in this documentary including
- Carl Meyer, our technology advisor who introduced us to Rachel and Keepod technologies
- Hamela, the Headteacher of Chilimba Secondary School where the eLearning Centre is hosted
- Four users of the eLearning Centre who explained how the learning resources were helping them.

At the risk of appearing immodest, I want to share a draft video of my trip to Malawi, which was produced by Sustainable Futures in Africa (SFA). It is a short 4.5min video (and has not been published by SFA yet, as it will be edited further). Some of you may know, Abundance is a founding member of SFA network an interdisciplinary international network with members in UK, Nigeria, Uganda, Botswana and Malawi. The reason I'm sharing this video is that it has a small snippet of our visit to Mbando village. Also, I thought you will enjoy the views in the video of the landscape of Malawi, dancing and singing of women from Mbando village, the background music of Jaco Jana and most importantly, some images inside our eLearning Centre including the shot of the mural with all donors names on it.

Donate to help us continue our work:
With your generous donations, we were able to set up this eLearning Centre at Mbando village. However, it is one thing to set up the centre, another to ensure its sustainability and making sure it continues to help users in future. We need more funds for holding regular training at the centre and for maintenance (for example replacement of battery every two years etc.). We estimate that we need $3,450 more to carry on our work comfortably and keep a fund in the bank for maintenance activities for the future.
Please share our Global Giving fundraiser widely https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/rural-offgrid-it-center-for-malawian-youth/
If you can spare any funds and donate, they are most welcome! Every penny counts.
Thanks in advance!
