Projects are the lifeblood of myGO Project. All the projects on the site were created by people just like you. Each project supports a fund chosen by the creator, and all funds go to support The Global Orphan Project.
The 10th anniversary of Mizzou for Malawi’s founding is coming up in 2018, and we are excited to use this opportunity to reconnect with Mizzou for Malawi’s alumni network.
There is great work being done at the primary school we built & continue to support in Pothawira Village, thanks to all of YOUR efforts when you were on campus at Mizzou. And, as always, there is more work to be done – the time has come to take on a major expansion project to build a secondary school on the property.
More than 300 students from Pothawira and surrounding communities attend the Pothawira Academy, a primary school for grades 1-8. Last year, only 4 out of 24 eligible students from Pothawira Academy were selected to attend public secondary school due to a lack of space and government funding. The children from Pothawira can go to private school but that’s expensive. Students from the surrounding communities don’t have that option.
Our goal is to raise funds for the conversion of the primary school into the much needed secondary school.
