Current donation status of the BAAK school

Andrea and Ingo flew to Tanzania in the summer of 2019 with the FLY & HELP organization to attend a school dedication. “Once you’ve experienced it, it doesn’t let you go,” is how Andrea describes her impressions, which quickly led her and Ingo to the plan to collect enough donations together with family, friends and colleagues so that a school can be built in Nakonya, Malawi, in 2021.

In May 2023, we will travel to Malawi with 25 people and catch up with the school inauguration!

Support our school project with your donation so that children have a future! All donations benefit the projects 1:1, as all costs of the foundation are borne privately by Reiner Meutsch or covered by sponsors.

All donors over 50 Euros please indicate their full name and address in the subject line in order to receive a donation receipt. All donors who donate with the keyword “BAAK School” agree that the FLY & HELP Foundation will communicate the name, address, date and amounts of the donations to the company BAAK GmbH & Co.

Education

Why Malawi?

Due to the population development, there is a great shortage of schools in Malawi. 35% of school-age children & adolescents have no school at all. Others learn without a roof over their heads and sit on stones. Millions of children, especially in rural districts – are therefore unable to attend school or have to walk 5 to 8 km each way to school. The routes to school are dangerous for the children because there are also repeated attacks on girls, so that parents do not want to send their children to schools far away.

The existing schools are all completely overcrowded and sometimes 150 children sit crammed together in one classroom. This makes learning impossible. With the construction of new schools in Malawi, we want to achieve that a maximum of 50 children are taught in one class. And that the children no longer have to walk for hours to and from school every day.

The village of Nakonya has a Christian population. In the district of Mulanje, 88% are Christians. The village, together with the surrounding 6 neighboring villages, consists of 4,500 families and has a Christian congregation served by a priest from the neighboring village of Namungela. The nearest school is in Muonekera and 6 km away. This means a round trip of 12 kilometers on foot per day for the children. For this reason, only a few children from the village go to school.

The chief of the village has already selected a flat and easily buildable plot of land for the construction of the school and has made it available free of charge. A new school building with 4 classrooms, office, storage room and toilets is to be built here. The Ministry of Education has promised to send the principal and necessary number of teachers in time. Some residents will do simple and skilled work on the construction from the beginning of the construction and will be paid for it by our master builder. In this way, they will also be trained and will be able to carry out later maintenance work on the building themselves.

Why FLY & HELP?

The main objective of FLY & HELP is to promote school education in developing countries. To date, more than 650 school projects have been initiated with a total funding volume of approximately 34 million euros. The new buildings will enable many thousands of children in Africa, Asia and Latin America to attend school and lay the foundation for a self-determined future. The goal is to implement at least 50 new projects each year.

The experience and the selection criteria were decisive for us to implement the project together with FLY & HELP:

  • Foundation staff personally research, review and select eligible projects.
  • Each project has a trusted person on site.
  • The progress of the construction work must be regularly verified by project reports.
  • The project-related use of the donations must be disclosed on an ongoing basis.
  • The projects are based on the basic idea of “helping people to help themselves”.
  • Sustainability must be guaranteed (e.g. government recognition and financing of teachers’ salaries).
  • All donations flow 1:1 into our educational projects, as Reiner Meutsch pays all administrative costs of the foundation privately or these are taken over by sponsors.
