A solidarity trip!

By Ilaria Ventura | Project Leader

This year the monitoring trip was carried out by four young volunteers: Marco and Miriam, who decided to go to visit Aleimar's Projects in Malawi for their honeymoon, Davide, a recent medical graduate who is putting his skills at the Mangochi hospital, and Andrea, who is conducting a thesis research on the impact that this project has on the entire community.

During their stay in the country, they met the families who benefited from the pedal pumps and, in collaboration with Kimu and the agronomist, contributed to the preparation of a training program with practical and theoretical lessons on innovative and environmentally agricultural techniques and on the correct use of the pedal pump.

The first meetings were for 10 people: 2 men and 8 women. A first difficulty encountered is due to the low level of literacy of the participants, but, thanks to the help of the young volunteers, some moments of teaching were cut out, from learning the alphabet to the simplest operations.

It was really exciting to see women write their names for the first time!

A special thank you goes to Marco, Miriam, Davide and Andrea who put themselves in the game for families and children in difficulty. But an even greater thank you goes to all those who contribute to the project and who give a hope of redemption.
