Culford Sixth Formers Return From Charitable Malawi Trip

Published Monday 15th of August 2016 10:26:30 AM

Culford Sixth Formers recently returned from their eighth visit to Malawi, working on a variety of charitable projects. During the two-week trip, Culford’s team of 17 pupils and accompanying staff implemented projects to improve the lives of some of the poorest people in this region of Africa, visiting schools, orphanages and even a prison. The money for this expedition was raised not only by the pupils, but also through generous sponsorship from The Rosetta Trust. The students refurbished two classrooms at Nankhufi School, serviced and repaired bore holes, and built a new energy efficient stove for the village to help combat the deforestation in Africa. As part of the Good Food Project, they served phala, a vitamin and nutrient rich soya porridge, to hundreds of school children and villagers, aiming to encourage children to stay in school by offering them a hot meal. Pupils also implemented Project My Girl, which provides PSHCE education for girls in Malawi and distributes sanitary kits. Project initiator, Andy Deane, Head of Languages at Culford Senior School, is proud of the Sixth Formers who took part. He said: “It was so rewarding to see the pupils return to Culford with their eyes wide open as to the challenges faced by Malawi and its dear people. They return in the knowledge that they have helped in every possible way through their fundraising and voluntary work. We look forward to our return in 2017.” Culford’s annual Malawi trip is just one of the fulfilling and rewarding experiences that is on offer at Culford.
