What we do
Roberta’s Nursery is a kindergarten for 45 children in Machinjiri, Malawi, which we founded in 2012 with a group of friends, family and acquaintances.
Malawi is one of the poorest countries in East Central Africa.
The daily program for the children consists of playing and learning several skills: colouring, cutting, writing and reading simple letters and numbers, dancing and musical activities. They also brush their teeth every morning and have breakfast. On Friday’s all the children take a shower.
The kindergarten functions as a role model in the community. In fact, instead of being left alone to wander in the streets, the children in our school get the necessary care which will give them a big head start in later education. As a result, the teachers from the local primary school welcome “our” little students and sometimes they place them in a class higher!
Roberta’s Nursery is sponsored by donations from family and friends and is a small miracle in the middle of a very difficult situation.
