Give students the opportunity for experiential learning through a partnership with Pamoza.
Facilitate service-learning projects: Service learning is a pedagogy that allows students to learn through strengthening communities. Because successful service-learning projects should be student-driven, Pamoza is willing to partner with your school or classroom to design the best project that serves the communities in Malawi but aligns with student skills and interests.
Invite us to speak: Pamoza makes learning fun. We are available to come and speak to your school or your classroom about Malawi culture and/or community development. Our sessions are interactive, engaging, and free. We want to expose students to how people live in Malawi and how their actions in the United States can help or hinder others.
Join our recycling program: Pamoza accepts empty ink cartridges, which we recycle for cash and use to fund our programs. Recycling allows students to make a difference for the environment while helping people in Malawi.
Sponsor School Breakfast: Food insecurity is a major challenge in rural Malawi. To counter malnutrition, Pamoza started a school breakfast program providing hot porridge to students. Currently, 1,500 students receive school breakfast every school day through our program. Because of our collaborative approach with the community, it costs us $10 per student per year to provide breakfast. Your school can help us sustain this program by sponsoring a certain number of students to receive breakfast.
Dress Down for Good: Do your students wear school uniforms? Host a dress down day to raise funds for a school in Malawi. Pamoza partners with 20 schools in rural Malawi and all of them have insufficient resources. Some of our school partners in the U.S. have allowed their students to dress down for $1 each and that money has been used to purchase desks and other school supplies for students in Malawi.
