Mercy Montessori Children Center Is Eight Years Old Now.
Mercy Montessori Children Center Is Eight Years Old Now.

Mercy Montessori Children Center(MMCC) is 8 years now since it was opened. Despite being this old the organization is still facing some challenges.  The main challenge is the lack of funds which is making the organization to have some problems in achieving its goals, vision and objectives. Some of the objectives is the provision of education to young and needy children.

The other challenge is that the organization as of now is still renting buildings in order to accommodate children as hostels and classes. This is making us to have problems in giving children good food and good clothes and education as the money we source is always divided in paying the rentals which is most of the times in large quantity, paying the care givers, buying food and paying utilities and meeting the hospital bills whenever kids fall sick.

The organisation’s main vision is that of collecting kids from streets and orphans, in order for them to get quality education and best home. And the main goal of this organization is to build a better home for these children so that we should take care of them and grow up there as their home. Therefore to fulfill this goal Mercy Montessori Children Center(MMCC) has managed to buy a land for the construction of the CHILDREN’S HOME.

Since Mercy Montessori Children Center(MMCC)  has managed to buy land for construction of Children’s Home, now we are looking for funding from well wishers to help us in coming up with USD 6,757.00 (MWK 50,000,000.00) as this amount is what is needed for us to build our own Children’s Home. We are also looking for volunteers who can help in building the Home for the children as currently the organization has no any funds that can manage to hire for the builders.

A BRIEF VIEW OF THE CHILDREN’S HOME

  • The building is 52m in length and 19m width which will accommodate 50 children.
  • The building will have 3 class rooms, 1 kitchen, office and store room toilets, bathrooms and also a clinic in case someone falls ill. In terms of security the director will also stay in the campus in order to look for the children. The director’s house will have 3 bed-roomed self contained house.
  • There will be a first aid room and also 2 self corner rooms for volunteers.
  • And will have boys and girls hostels but these hostels will be separated as we know that there are different scandals that can happen when girls share the same hostel together with boys. Therefore, will have separate hostels in order for them to have respect for each other especially when they reach puberty stage.

We were really stranded about the food and relish for children at our Center, We had really nothing in our stores. We are now giving more thanks to Nadia Söderman for the great donation of the 200 €, that helped us to buy 20 bags of corn maize that will help us feed the children for 3 and half months.

May Our Almighty God bless Nadia for her support to these Children .

We Need Your Help

Two weeks ago someone came to our Center to tell us a good news for the Children that she is selling a plot after seeing that our place is not suitable for  Children Center. On the plot there are three houses each house can feat 70 Children. And also at the plot there is nice children ground water, electricity (power) and 2 toilets and fruit trees

From our center to the plot is 100 miters. I believe this will be a better plot since the money which is used for rent will be used to feed the Children. I believe children will be more excited to have this plot, If God allows we will have a primary school within the plot because it’s a big one.

So we need you to help us if possible to raise money to buy this plot and help us to let the well-wishers know about this issue so that we can buy the plot for as the Orphanage. The price is EUR 9,473.00 (12,437)

You can donate any amount. Visit http://mercychildren.org/get-involved/ for bank details.

We promise to respect and thank anyone who can contribute. Anyone who can help us with the all amount of money will be appreciated by renaming the plot by his name.
