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



Details of Project:



To get to the next stage of the Printernet Cafe we have had for 8 months. To fund at least one girl getting to school.

 $2500 will pay for building. We have the land and have made the bricks and buying two computers. The foundation of the building is being built today.



Over the last 7 months, we earned a profit of $1750. Some of that profit was used to pay school fees for girls. (Documentation on request)
