Education is an undisputed necessity for people to further their lives. MMWF’s education programme is also in a small way contributing towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), where we strives to improve everything from the access to education of young people, school repairs, and provisions of educational teaching aids for the communities it serves. The educational support is a big part of the whole of what MMWF believes in strengthening.
MMWF believes it is important to provide deserving students with necessary supplies to encourage the furthering of children’s education. Books, obviously, are supremely important. It is hard to keep up on your education, without having to share books, or only having so much time at school to use the books. You need as much access to information to further an education, so MMWF proceeds to supply all that can be supplied.
School bags too are vital and necessary at times, when a student has a long way to walk to school, as this is often the case. Having to juggle a collection of books and supplies takes some of the eagerness out of going to school.
Uniforms too can be an essential part of regular school attendance. It helps create an environment of shared community in poor, isolated neighborhoods. A sense of isolation is a hard thing to deal with and having a shared uniform along with the opportunity to learn, can be a powerful, emotional support.
In support of the schools, MMWF provides essential teaching equipment and teachers training: blackboards, school furniture and the basics that schools need to be functional. In the future, MMWF will be providing computers and other teaching aids to the school. As further support to the schools themselves, there is also help offered to repair, and construct additional school rooms and other areas (separate toilets for girls, playgrounds facilities etc.)
We strive to give as much support as possible and have chosen these, as a strong foundation to help people. Having supplies for the children and the schools is important to help the whole community. Helping the disadvantaged is most effective when you can spread the aid out in the community.
