Ganet's Adventure School COVID-19 Appeal

Why we need your help

We are launching an emergency fundraising appeal to support the teachers and staff of Ganet's Adventure School during the COVID-19 outbreak.

COVID-19 is having a severe impact in Malawi. Malawi was already struggling economically even before the pandemic struck due to drought and around 70% of the population live below the poverty line. Recently, there have been protests in response to the lockdown and there are only around 20 ventilators and 25 intensive care beds in public hospitals in the whole of Malawi, serving 17 million people.  

Ganet's Adventure School is a primary school located in a village close to Nkhata Bay in northern Malawi. It was founded in 2004 by widowed mother of four Gertrude Banda, in response to lack of preschool care for children in the community. The school has expanded and now has 260 primary pupils.

The COVID-19 lockdown has, however, meant that the school has been forced to temporarily close and the school is now unable to pay its teachers and support staff as it receives no government funding. 

The funds raised in this appeal will go towards covering 75% of the salaries of the school's teachers and staff until September, as well as to cover the operating costs of the school such as water bills.

The money you donate today will help to support the inspirational teachers and staff of Ganet's Adventure School and their families at this uncertain and difficult time. Thank you.
