The Hostel is OPEN May 2017 in Golomoti, Malawi

May 2017 marks the time that the girls hostel is opened in Golomoti, in the District of Dedza, Malawi. This was a dream that came to life through Senior Chief Theresa Kachindamoto.  When we visited with her a short year ago, she mentioned that the girls that she rescues from child marriages are back in school but they have to find their own lodging.  Sometimes it’s a room in a house, sometimes it’s very far, or expensive, but it’s always a challenge as they go back to school. At times they have children that they have left with other adults to raise in hopes that their education will change their future. Sometimes they come with scars of abuse or embarrassment or shame. But they are all young girls with dreams and they needed a place to call home while completing their studies. I will admit, I didn’t even know what a hostel was. But with our collaboration with Senior Chief, we not only built it but with your help, we paid for bunk beds that now have sheets, beautiful quilts, pillows and pillowcases. It is one of the most exciting things I have experienced as I saw these girls watching us put the beds together and cover the new mattresses with gorgeous bedding. I can’t thank you enough for helping to make this happen.  Your donations to the BIG DINNER, your donations of bedding and money to pay for the facility and the beds…all of it…ALL OF IT… was vital and came together with life-changing results for these girls. One thing you can know for sure: your donations GET directly to these girls and your blessings are appreciated.  Thank you and God bless your good works!!! Love, Rachel
