BENEFITING: Advancing Girls' Education in Africa

EVENT: Tri for Malawi 2016

EVENT DATE: Sep 11, 2016

THE STORY:

Each year, fifty athletes, join the Ambassador from the Republic of Malawi to the United States to compete in the Events DC Nation’s Triathlon, and honor AGE Africa’s scholars who walk a triathlon-sized distance every week just to attend school. The Tri for Malawi Team Challenge is AGE Africa’s largest fundraising event, and this year team members will compete to raise a total of $150,000 to support 200 scholarships for AGE Africa’s students this fall! 

 

Why join the Tri for Malawi Team Challenge?

  • Less than 6% of women in Malawi have graduated high school and less than 1% nationwide go onto higher education.
  • In Malawi, girls are under enrolled in secondary school nearly 2:1 compared to boys and in some districts this figure is as high as 6:1.
  • 50% all girls in Malawi are married by 18.
  • Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world, ranking 171 out of 187.

I had meant to try to raise money myself for AGE in the Nation's triathlon this year, but I got sidetracked and left it too late.....so I thought I'd donate to Sari's team instead. 1 year ago
