Mid-Year News from AGE Africa!

Last week, over 100 of AGE Africa’s CHATS Girls’ Club scholars, gathered in Blantyre, Malawi for our annual AGE Africa All-Scholars Retreat. This years, theme, “Leadership by Choice, not by Chance” focused on the accomplishments and the critical role of women in public office.  In a country, where half of the population is female, and only 16.7% of Malawi’s parliamentary seats are held by women, making every chance that rurally- based, underprivileged girls, get to interact with these leaders vitally important. Former First Lady of Malawi, Callista Mutharika, the Minister of Gender, Hon. Patricia Kaliati, and Chief Kachindamoto, a girls rights champion and other prominent female leaders spoke to the scholars, encouraging them to pursue leadership opportunities in their schools and communities.

AGE Africa’s scholarship and CHATS Girls’ Clubs programs aim to ensure that girls complete their education and develop the self-confidence, leadership and decision making skills necessary to influence their country’s legislative agenda.

To support our scholarship fund, we are proud to announce another edition of the Tri for Malawi Team Challenge! We are so excited to have H.E. Ambassador from Malawi to the United States, Edward Yakobe Sawerengera participating in support of AGE Africa once again.  Click the link to learn more about the Tri and visit our website to learn more about our important work in Malawi!
