This is a graduation ceremony at Mutu primary school, Lilongwe where final exams results were published and the children spent the afternoon playing games and celebrating for the selection of children into different classes.

The school had six children selected to join secondary school/high school - 2 boys and 4 girls. The JCT is continually encouraging and supporting girls to continue with their higher level education.

June
The currency devaluation of the Malawian kwacha (49%) has resulted in the JCT trying to cater for significant increases in the cost of basic items for the foundation such as procurement of flour for all centers and plant seed.

With funding from Evangelical Assemblies of God the JCT has embarked with a programme to support computer training to the children on a weekly basis.  In order for the children to succeed in this technological world, it is imperative they are educated about technology at any early age and have access to computers at grassroots level.

July

Due to the challenges and problems that were being caused by not having accommodation for carers at each of our four feeding centers (Chitipa, Nsanje, Mangochi and Lilongwe), a large proportion of funding and donations have been used to build these houses.  This enable the carers to be residential at the centers, providing easy communication and preparation for the children.

October
With the relevant Health Association guidance the JCT built an effective sanitation system for the Mangochi center in order to maintain a high level of hygiene due the amount of congestion from so many children attending on a weekly basis.
