SO WHAT IS GOING ON THEN?!

Corona Virus

The world situation is not great, in fact it is pretty poor - but for those who are still here, we want to say that we are still here, we are still open (who knows for how long). For those of you who need to get out, who need to breathe, who want to come and walk Saxon and Loki and not think about the outside world for a short while, come up, or go to the Plateau and employ one of the Tour Guides who desperately need the cash right now. They have been briefed about how to follow the guidelines too :) We dont' mean to be callous but life must go on for those of us who can so we are trying our best to keep up morale and to keep smiling. We are being careful and following all the appropriate pr

The Environmental Education idea?

It was all going swimmingly. We got 8 schools on board, the teaching had started, the linked sports tournaments had started and it was showing great promise. The schools and pupils were very excited about it all... but sadly, due to the current situation, we have had to pause it all. But watch this space, it will be returning :) Below are some of the school classes participating :)

Sports for a purpose :)

A few years ago, we started sponsoring the Happy Hammers, a local football team, in exchange for assistance with firefighting and general help with environmental education and tree planting. We then added the Berries FC. And then we added each teams' respective netball teams. In case you are wondering: for every football team in Malawi, there is a netball team. Most of you who have visited Malawi, would know that the women do most of the work, in all areas of life; whether it be in the home, with the children, or in the fields. The women are responsible for making things happen. They are the movers and the shakers, but they are the unsung heroins. Everything they do is expected of them, that

TREEZ

As some of you know, TREEZ is a work in progress. It evolves every year depending on what has worked or not. One of the things we were trying to improve on was the survival rate of the trees planted along the streams. Previously, each year we have planted and then topped up where necessary. We have paid for each job; ie: clearing, pitting, planting, maintaining etc but we wanted the groups to be more involved, to take ownership of these trees. So last year we decided that we would pay for each seedling that had survived by counting each tree and seedling a year later. And so we counted, and between the 2 groups, over 7,000 trees survived. A huge CONGRATULATIONS :)))
