Printernet - Malawi
Reason for project:
To create a predictable revenue stream by building a more secure building to house the Printernet Cafe established 6 months ago.
Profits have been and will continue to send girls to school. To invest in enterprise in the community. The building will serve as a protected and secure community center to connect the many groups working in Tuchila. The immediate situation is to respond to destruction created by the recent cyclone and protect investments made in equipment.
The ongoing work by many agencies working on different problems with village people
