Challenge

Education is key to the socio-economic development. Access to quality education however remains a far-fetched dream for most girls in Rumphi. In most Malawian areas, especially in Rumphi district, girls drop out of school because their respective families fail to pay school fees and meet the costs of their education. Girls from financially crippled families are becoming easy targets for arranged early marriages as their families fail to shoulder the burden of paying school fees and other costs.

Solution

The neediest secondary school going girls will be supported with school fees, notebooks and school uniform every year. They will also be supported with sanitary pads. Also, we will provide vocational skills to girls and introduce an entrepreneurship training and provide start-up capital so that girls can be able to economically stand on their own.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting Tesha and other 29 girls to complete their education, girls will be able to break out of the vicious cycle that entraps unskilled and resource-poor girls. At-risk girls will become emancipated women when given the chance to be well-educated, and develop into useful citizens who are gainfully employed and self-sufficient.
