Throughout Malawi, schools require that students wear a uniform they have purchased themselves. Students who don't have uniforms are denied the opportunity to go to school. In the Kasungu District of Malawi, most families are vulnerable and many include orphans who are supported by their grandparents or guardians. For many of them, it is a huge financial burden to provide uniforms for their children. Uniforms will allow them to focus on their studies while not imposing a hardship on guardians.
Orphan girls in Kasungu, one of the poorest areas of Malawi, will be able to continue their education. The uniform will allow them to focus on their studies while not imposing a financial hardship on their guardians.
A uniform is a mandatory requirement for students at primary schools in Malawi - particularly girls. Girls who cannot afford to purchase a uniform are not able to continue their schooling. This requirement is especially difficult for girls who are orphans. This project will enable 50 orphan girls to purchase a uniform, stay in primary school and receive a basic education. It provides them a chance to build a better life for themselves and their families.
By supporting this project, you can help send donations to CARE Malawi that help prepare girls for a lifetime of opportunity.
