Since late December 2020, Malawi has experienced a dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases. The efforts of the Ministry of Health to ensure the possibility to receive vaccines are exemplary, however choose which buy is difficult: many vaccines have shown very low coverage for the African version of the virus.
Our work with the distribution of water pumps is going on. It is a very important, especially now: water is essential to agriculture and to ensure a basic sanitation level.
After a long time, schools finally re-opend on 22 febraury 2021; To make it possible, the Education Ministery has invested five bilion of Malawi Kwacha (5 Million Euro). Money that must be enough to drill 600 wells; to give all schools access to drinking water that allows them to wash their hands. Six hundred schools that have never had in their poverty even a well for water. With the same money the individual schools will have to buy soap and buckets with a faucet and masks that will be required to enter the classroom.
The proposal is to distribute tents to be used as classes. Plastic tents that in the African summer sun will become real ovens and bring students back to the shade of the trees. With great urgency schools, in addition to water and classrooms or tents, need a minimum of 3200 auxiliary teachers. A further urgency to be able to reopen schools seriously is the distribution of school textbooks
Aleimar is working to build a wells in local schools. This is an expensive operation: a 50-meter deep well with a hand pump costs 3,500 euros.
