Research Opportunity

Earlier this year Stephen Walsh with a team of research scientists from DIT won the Alltech Innovation award for their research project on the various Nutritional and curative values contained in the Moringa Tree. This tree grows lavishly around the Zomba area of Malawi and Stephen has volunteered to travel to the Summer School and continue their research at a field level while participating in the whole project.

That’s Stephen 3rd from Right:

Our volunteers continue their big Fund Raising efforts.

Kavanagh Family in Carnew

Ellie, her Mam and a host of friends came together at the Resource Centre in Carnew recently for an Afternoon tea event to raise funds for Ellie’s trip to Zomba as one of the volunteers to run the first Chifundo Summer School there and establish a new outreach of Learning for the Chifundo Children.

The result was a staggering €1,510 from one event. Fantastic! Thank you to all.

Ellie Thank you
