There are 412 AIDS orphans at the Jacaranda Primary and Secondary School in Malawi. For nine years I have maintained the school and provided food for the children with the money I earn as a nanny. Your donation makes a huge difference and helps me in keeping this mission alive. Marie Da Silva (Top Ten CNN Hero)

Joy. The joy of singing, dancing, performing, playing together. With violins, trumpets, trombones, guitars, drums. Joy of children creating rhythms and melodies, on the shores of Lake Malawi, proud of themselves, proud of their togetherness. The Jacaranda School Choir shined at Lake of Stars Festival, in a show of energy, happiness, and hope for a promising future.
