"I hope to go to secondary like my brother."
Austin Watson, aged 14 years old, shared how he used to go to school on an empty stomach, finding it hard to focus and learn until eventually he had to drop out.
ECLT supported a project providing school meals to children like Austin at Chilwa Primary school in Malawi. Austin has now enrolled in school again, and is receiving scholastic materials to support his education. He is now in the top 10 of his class!
Thanks to the project Austin and his parents are positive about his bright future and for the many other children like Austin in the three districts that ECLT supports.
Mwalimu's story is part of the Learn4Dreams campaign ECLT is running this World Day against Child Labour. To learn more about supporting quality education check out our dedicated webpage here: eclt.org/learn4dreams.
