Summary

Education is a birthright for all children. Yet for girls in many developing countries, it's a promise seldom kept. Considered unworthy of education, girls are often denied schooling and other opportunities, leaving them stuck in a cycle of poverty. Investing in a girl's education pays major dividends: educated women are healthier, earn more, have fewer children, and contribute to the prosperity of the whole community. CARE Malawi supports programs that offer girls more educational options.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Although enrollment numbers for girls in schools in Malawi are increasing, there are often basic supplies that are out of reach for many families.

How will this project solve this problem?

Your financial support can make a critical difference in the life of a girl like Charity, who recently completed her schooling through a CARE Malawi program. Helping provide the very basic of needs - a school uniform, access to books and learning materials, etc. can make it all possible.

Potential Long Term Impact

By supporting this project, you can help send donations to CARE Malawi that help prepare girls for a lifetime of opportunity.
