Food for Thought in Malawi/MamaLita Forum

Food for Thought in Malawi/MamaLita Forum

Miriam Brazzelli from our Unit gave a presentation on Food Insecurity around the Globe within the Food for Thought in Malawi/MamaLita Forum which took place at the University of Edinburgh (Psychology Department) on 5th June 2018.

Among the speakers there were Peter Mathieson, Principal of the University of Edinburgh; Rita Milesi, founder and manager of the MamaLita School in Malawi; Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, founder and Chief Executive of Mary's Meals.  

The MamaLita school in South-East Malawi has 200 children enrolled, aged 3-6 years, and approximately 50 per cent are girls. The focus of the school is to support the health and wellbeing of the children through providing nutrition and education for their development. The MamaLita project has also created an education path where local teachers will be trained. There are strong links between Scotland and Malawi. The MamaLita project builds on these links and aims to provide a hub for families and an educational pathway for children from disadvantaged background. The multidisciplinary approach of the project will support the development of a sustainable environment, which provides both food and education.
