School Construction

Schools in Malealea are over-crowded and often crumbling. We are continually raising funds to provide urgent reconstruction projects for schools, because children deserve learning environments that are whole and safe.

Childhood Development

Childhood is often lost to the harsh realities of subsistence living. Too many children struggle to make it to school and to get enough to eat. If they have a disability, life is made nearly impossible. As well as contributing funds to need-based secondary school scholarships and supporting supplementary educational programs for all students, we also provide aid to children living with disabilities, allowing them to get the individual care that they need.

It all started when our founder, Gerard Heijkoop, visited Malealea for the first time. Since 2004, we have been collaborating with local organizations to support sustainable development and improvements to general quality of life for the people of this incredible land.


Annual Report

Committed to Progress.

In 2017 we were able to provide scholarships for two children with disabilities, complete monumental restorations to the Lebona Primary School and the Molai Primary School, as well as make progress towards providing clean water access to the village of Ha Raboletsi.

We continue to support the salaries of the Malealea Development Trust staff, as well as their many other fundamental projects.
