There are 412 AIDS orphans at the Jacaranda Primary and Secondary School in Malawi. For nine years I have maintained the school and provided food for the children with the money I earn as a nanny. Your donation makes a huge difference and helps me in keeping this mission alive. Marie Da Silva (Top Ten CNN Hero)

The hall will be used for school assemblies, music shows, theater performances, art exhibitions and more, while the top floor will host four classrooms.

Thanks to donations raised, we have been able to start rebuilding some of the children houses destroyed by the storms. Ndaziona is in Standard 3 at Jacaranda School and she now can sleep peacefully in a safe house built with burnt bricks, cement and iron sheets. We have a target of fifty houses to be completely rebuilt. Please consider making a donation towards our reconstruction effort.
