#362: Malawi: School Garden and Bull: $100.00 per electric pump; $28.00 per water treadle pump; $20.00 per inlet pipe; $50.00 per outlet pipe; $.50 per bag of cement; $10.00 per bag of pesticide; $50.00 for food bank construction and $100 for a dairy cattle bull (for milk and fertilizer).  Malawi has had a rainfall shortage. This has resulted in a poor harvest of maize (corn).  Children have been particularly vulnerable to the food shortage.  These materials are needed to build a school garden.  The garden would be built along the river where water can be trapped.  The food and milk would be for the students at the Early Childhood Development Center.
