Lette's story

Your gifts in action

Give more children like Lette the gift of hope

Lette from Malawi was just 11 years old when her mom passed away. She dropped out of school to care of her two little brothers, scavenging for food, so they would have something to eat.  

Every day was a struggle for survival and despite Lette’s best efforts, they often went to bed hungry – but thanks to the kindness of people like you, the story doesn’t end here… 

The promise of daily school meals brought Lette back into the classroom. Instead of searching for scraps of food, Lette was able to focus on her education and she began to learn and thrive.  

Nine years on, she is about to graduate from Jacaranda School for Orphans and has a bright future ahead of her.
