Lette's story

Your gifts in action

Making a difference in Malawi

You may remember Lette from our film, Child 31. When she was just 11 years old, her mom passed away. Lette 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 a daily school meal 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, we caught up with Lette to find out how she's doing. Watch this short film for the full story.
