The Nchima Trust targets its funds and donations in a very direct manner, ensuring that the money gets to the causes and people intended. We fund the training of between 20 and 40 university and vocational college students each year plus up to 100 secondary school students. We also set up and support the Nchima Trust Centre where we host and encourage various entrepreneurial activities such as the card makers.
We focus heavily on the education of young women and girls and our innovative school feeding project (see Page 2 - Ntambanyama) which has been running well for a few years, supported by Sibford School (Oxon), has had a very significant impact upon pass rates for girls at schooling age.
By way of example, we once had a 15 year old orphan referred to us. He had no family to support him and found work on a farm. He was a good worker but once the farmer discovered that he was below the legal age of employment, he had no choice but to dismiss him. Feeling that the boy deserved more, the farmer made contact with the Nchima Trust volunteer in Malawi and within a fortnight the boy had been found a good boarding school and we dropped him off at the school with a blanket, soap, toothpaste and other essentials. 3 weeks later he called to say how happy he was and asked for his bus fare to the school football match as he had been selected for the school's first eleven! Our presence, reputation and network of supporters on the ground enable the Trust to react quickly and effectively and to follow up.
