Power of 10 Campaign Status Report for Donors

 

Dear Esteemed Supporters,

As we progress through the Power of 10 Campaign, our mission remains steadfast—to halt the cycle of poverty and child marriage in Malawi through education. Our goal is bold yet simple: change the lives of 10 girls immediately and permanently by providing them with the education they urgently need.

Progress Overview Our campaign is built on the belief that education is a critical lever for social and economic development—particularly for girls in dire circumstances in Malawi. Despite the increasing costs of education and living in Malawi, which often forces families to choose between schooling for their daughters and basic necessities, our campaign has been a beacon of hope.

 

Achievements to Date

  • We have mobilized resources towards our $10K target, vital for supporting 10 new girls through high school. While we are yet to fully meet our financial goal, contributions from various sources have begun laying the foundation for these girls' futures.
  • Awareness about the critical link between education and the prevention of GBV and child marriage has been significantly raised, underscoring the urgency and importance of our campaign.

Why This Matters

  • The stark reality is that without education, these 10 girls face a high likelihood of becoming child brides. Statistics show that 65% of women with no formal education were married as children, compared to just 5% who had secondary or higher education.
  • By breaking the cycle of child marriage and early pregnancy through education, we're not just changing individual lives; we're catalyzing broader social and economic development in the region.

Call to Action We are on the cusp of achieving something truly transformational, but we need your continued support to reach our goal. Every contribution brings us closer to providing these 10 girls with the education they deserve, setting them on a path to a brighter future. We invite you to join us in this critical mission—your support can save lives and create a legacy of change.

 

Thank you for your unwavering support and belief in the power of education. Together, we are making a difference.

 

Warmest regards,

 

AGE Africa
