Tri for Malawi to Provide 170 Scholarships!
On September 7th, 2014, 55 athletes, humanitarians, and friends honored our girls who walk a triathlon-sized distance every week just to attend school by participating in the Nations Triathlon on behalf of AGE Africa. Together, the Tri for Malawi Team has raised over $145,000 – An incredible $15,000 over our original goal! Again this year, the Ambassador from the Republic of Malawi to the United States, His Excellency Steven Matenje, and the Deputy Chief of Mission, Jane Nankwenya, who joined the festivities and swam, biked, and ran with their Embassy Team Staff. A huge thank you to all of our extraordinary athletes, donors, and corporate partners, Rock Creek Group, Koltai & Co., and Coray Gurnitz Consulting for helping to realize our goal and providing 170 scholarships to needy girls this fall!
The Tri for Malawi Team Challenge is an annual AGE Africa fundraising initiative that promotes awareness and provides a creative opportunity to get involved and support girls’ education in Malawi. Each year, the team members pledge to raise between $500 and $10,000 individually to support comprehensive scholarships for AGE Africa’s scholars. Each year, the Ambassador from the Republic of Malawi to the United States, His Excellency Steve Matenje, joins fifty athletes to honor our girls who walk a triathlon-sized distance every week just to attend school.
