Life Child Malawi Moyo Preschool is located in Baluti village, situated in Blantyre district. This area is predominantly comprised of poor and disadvantaged families. The people of Baluti come from many different cultural backgrounds and generally face many challenges as a result of their cultural beliefs and level of poverty. Parents tend to have many children who they are often unable to take care of. The majority of children in the area will go to sleep hungry at night and do not have access to any recreational opportunities. Often children here do not get to play or socialise with their peers due to the burden of extra responsibilities they carry, regardless of their age, in helping their families to survive, such as digging for food.
Through Life Child, we aim to bring generational change is these challenging situations. Currently we are caring for 60 children, aged 3 to 5 years, who come to school, receive a quality education and have a nutritious meal every day. We try to involve parents in the daily work at the school, to teach them some ways of caring for their children. We organise social and recreational activities with the children and also visit them at their homes to enhance the relationship and offer specific help to meet the needs of each child.
