Slotland.com's African School Pulls Community Together
By Jon Young
Classes have begun at the rural African school built by online casino and mobile slot machine site, Slotland.com.

A little more than a year ago, Slotland.com began collaborating with local villages in Malawi to build and operate the elementary school in Juma. Classes have now begun and hundreds of villagers are involved in maintaining the school and the gardens that feed its 116 students.

“These people don’t know what an online slot machine is and they’ve never seen a mobile phone, never mind played video poker on one,” said Slotland’s local project coordinator. “But they do understand generosity and are all forever grateful to Slotland.com.”

Slotland provided all funding for building the school as well as training volunteers and recruiting teaching staff. They’ve also provided skilled project coordinators to teach villagers to run the school when they eventually leave.

The school, known as Umodzi-Mbame, provides meals to all students and even grows the food it serves. Its gardens have been used to demonstrate new farming methods to local farmers – ways to conserve soil and water and produce more food with less work.

“We got the village elders on side from the start,” explained the project coordinator. “Our project depends on the involvement of the whole community so their support was critical. It’s amazing what a positive difference Slotland has made here.”
