Direct Appeal for a Special Little Nursery School!
Today as you read this Seibo provides hot school meals in nursery schools and primary schools in Malawi. As a rule we work in areas of need. We work with local communities and they in turn volunteer their time to cook the food purchased using donations from Japan.
Help Kazomba Nursery
The “Ndiko Kurya Uku” Nursery is not a recipient of Seibo school feeding. It is however on our radar for the future. There are 47 children at the nursery school. They do not receive a school meal. With your help they will but for now their challenge is they have no water. The nursery tried to close down due to the lack of water but parents continued to send their kids to school.
Water- the Next Challenge
The CBO (community organisation) who run the nursery have tried to dig wells for 10 x villages all of which collapsed within a year. They have no water- not even dirty water. The nearest well is 3 kms away- a 6km return trip. It takes two hours and the well is in demand being the only source of water around.
They have tried to close the school but the children still come. They used to serve porridge but they are reliant on members and parents and this has stopped.
七転八起- Try, Try and Try Again!
Most of the CBO’s support comes from well-wishers and they generate enough income to pay school fees for 7 x young mothers who otherwise would not have an education.
The CBO founder Lexah takes no pride in begging. They have managed so far by baking, sewing and educating others but having tried and failed to dig wells at their CBO and 10 local villages we believe it’s their turn to be on the receiving end.
1,000 yen Appeal- Christmas/New Year Special
We are asking you to donate 1,000 yen to help dig a well for the children. Ideally we would like to order the well for Christmas. For each donation we will give you a Christmas present in return and at the same time Seibo will commit to sending 100% of your donations to our partners in Malawi to make sure the well is completed.
Our Fundraising Goal
Your Christmas Present!
For every 1,000 yen donated Seibo will send you a special Christmas edition of Malawian 100gms coffee (freshly roasted in December) or a 100gm pack of Malawian Earl Grey or Black Tea. As a festive extra we will also include 1 x cloth cup-holder made by the Kurya Ndiko Uku community organisation to help warm your cup in this cold season and to thank you from all of us for helping to bring Christmas to the nursery school in Kazomba.

We reached our goal of USD 6,550. But we’ve changed the goal posts. In the process of finding water we dug two viable wells & raised USD 7,400 in the process. With another USD 500 we can provide the community with 2 x viable wells and we’re going for it. Thank you for your ongoing support!
