Area 49 of Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi, is where the Amai Maria residence for young secondary school and university students, managed by the missionaries of Mary Mediator, is located.

The Amai Maria residence offers 70 Malawian girls the opportunity to continue their secondary and university studies in the country's capital. Thanks to the residence these girls have the opportunity to continue their education in a country like Malawi, where it is not easy for women to continue their secondary and university studies.

Every day the students have to travel from the Amai María residence to the different schools and universities they attend, spread over different Areas (neighborhoods) of the city. Public transport in Lilongwe is very precarious and is carried out in "Matolas" (vans with an open cabin) or private "MiniVans" (Minibuses), always very crowded with people. In fact, MiniVans and Matolas do not have fixed schedules, as they do not start the journey/route until all the seats are occupied, and can stop anywhere waiting to have enough passengers to make the trip profitable. Harassment of women is common in Lilongwe's shared transport.

Equipping the residence of young students Amai Maria in Area 49  with its own MiniVan, would provide these students a safer journey to their respective schools without having to share the vehicle, avoiding not only the harassment that the students suffer in the shared MiniBuses but also it would make possible to adapt travel times to their school hours, which would reduce school absenteeism among students.

In addition, the MiniVan of Area 49 would also serve other centers that the missionaries have in Malawi: the Mlale hospital and the Chezi orphanage. None of these centers has a similar vehicle, so it would be very useful to transport  girls, boys or patients between the different centers that the Missionaries manage in Malawi.

The #miniVAN_Area49 project is an initiative of Nomadas Motorhome company, in collaboration with the Esteban Vigil Foundation and the Operación Pangono Pangono Association.

Remember that your support for the #miniVAN_Area49 project is deducted from your income statement. The first 150€ will have  tax benefits of up to 80% and from that amount up to 35%. Remember to complete all your details in your migranodearena.org profile.

A Operación Pangono Pangono está formada por un grupo de profesionais de perfil técnico (enxeñaría, frigoristas, electricistas…) que deciden achegar o seu gran de area para mellorar un pouco a vida de quen menos ten.
Todos os profesionais técnicos que forman a Operación Pangono Pangono realizan o seu traballo de maneira voluntaria, deixando a escolla das necesidades de actuación a quen mellor as coñece, ás persoas e entidades que levan anos traballando para reducir as desigualdades sociais e a pobreza por todo o mundo. A Operación Pangono Pangono, simplemente, escoita as necesidades de implantación ou mellora nas instalacións (electricidade, informática,...) das entidades coas que colabora e trata de resolver estas necesidades técnicas co menor custo posible, ou de balde, para esas entidades.
