Much was achieved in food security, 5 borehole repairs meant water restoration for thousands, increased milk production, moringa and vegetable planting, community vegetable gardens, and tree nurseries.

We were able to help many with medical treatment, collecting  their ARV’s (AIDS treatment), and emergency food.

We funded small businesses, built a couple of houses for the frail elderly and roofed others, extended our education programme in Secondary Schools,  distributed blankets and children’s jumpers kindly knitted by our friends in the UK, and hosted a successful Pastors’ Conference.
As we consider the results of the three months’ trip, it’s amazing to realise that
AID AFRICA/Open Hand Projects is continuing to affect the lives of so many in the impoverished rural communities of Malawi.
And finally .......
Lots of the children that we sponsor at Secondary Schools have been visiting, with all sorts of needs—from exercise books to paraffin so they can study at night. There’s been lots of re-organisation in the schools, causing an administrative nightmare, but we’ve now sorted the changes, paid school & exam fees, and bought uniforms.
We’re delighted that 5 of our Form 4’s last year passed their MSCE (equal to good GCSE passes), but now they’re looking to the future.  Some want to learn to drive and become career drivers (a big deal in Malawi!) others want to go to College or University.  

We’d like to set up a FE Fund (Further Education Fund) to help the particularly gifted become nurses, teachers, doctors, or other professions Malawi desperately needs as it tries to push through the poverty barrier.

Currently, we support the Secondary School education of 81 teenagers out  in the rural areas - all are deemed vulnerable, and would not be able to remain in school without the help of their UK sponsors.
