We couldn’t be prouder to be connected with this amazing project, read on to hear more about the latest updates from The Greater Manchester West Scouts during their trip to Malawi. When we last heard from them, they were about to depart from the airport ready to take the project on.
Now they are in Malawi, working seriously hard to achieve the aims and goals of the project. The group of 24 have spent 10 days staying in a village where they have been completing project work. This entails;
- Fitting a pump and solar panels to the village borehole.
- Painting 7 classrooms
- Planted 55 fruit trees in an orchard
- Dug trenches to fit trenches from the bore hole to the orchard
- Built a work area in the school kitchen
The group are now moving on from the village and have arrived at Cape MaClear, which is often described as the warm heart of Africa. As you may know, the group have taken a fleet of bags we designed and made for them as a donation to go towards the project. We have also been sent images of the bags on location in the African sun. It is because of these bags that we are connected to the project, and lucky enough to have an insight into the work transformational work they are doing
For further updates from the group directly, check out their Facebook where they post updates regularly.
