Kicking Off the 2016 Tri for Malawi!

The 2015 Tri for Malawi Team Challenge!
The 2015 Tri for Malawi Team Challenge!

It’s that time of year again – we are kicking off AGE Africa’s biggest annual fundraising event, the 2016 Tri for Malawi Team Challenge!

Each year, AGE Africa’s friends and supporters compete in the Nation’s Triathlon in downtown Washington, D.C, alongside the Ambassador from the Republic of Malawi to the United States, H.E. Necton D. Mhura, and the Embassy of Malawi. Together, the athletes swim, run, and bike in honor of AGE Africa’s scholars who walk a triathlon-sized distance every week just to attend school!

This year, on Sunday, September 11th, Tri for Malawi team members will compete to raise a total of $150,000 to support 200 scholarships for some of Malawi’s most disadvantaged young women. These comprehensive scholarships alleviate the barriers to education that many young women in Malawi face. In addition to covering the cost of school fees, they also cover the indirect costs of an education, which can often be more than double the cost of tuition. This includes the cost of uniforms, school supplies, personal hygiene products, and transportation to and from school. Most importantly, AGE Africa’s scholarships are making a big difference in the lives of their recipients. 88% of AGE Africa’s scholarship students will complete all four years of secondary school, compared to less than 6% of girls nationwide!

Join us in transforming the lives of these young women by signing up for the 2016 Tri for Malawi hereFor more information, please email triathlon@ageafrica.org or visit our website at www.ageafrica.org.
