Welcome to the Malawi Embassy Team CrowdRise page. We are joining his Excellency Ambassador Edward Sawerengera and the rest of the AGE Africa Board of Directors in the Ride for Malawi on September 7, 2019, to benefit AGE Africa Scholars.
We know first-hand the challenges many girls in Malawi face to access an education. As Malawians, we are deeply committed to doing our part and represent the hopes and dreams of the girls AGE Africa supports.
Since 2005, AGE Africa has provided over 300 girls with four-year secondary school scholarships, CHATS after-school programming for 2500 girls, and 66 starter packages for girls who qualified for tertiary education. These numbers are promising considering that only 6% of young women in Malawi hold a secondary school degree and less than 1% graduate from university.
Knowing there are organizations like AGE Africa who are committed to breaking barriers that keep girls in Malawi out of school is why we are doing the Ride for Malawi. You can also be part of our team and help AGE Africa reach its $100,000 goal. Simply click the "join" button on our CrowdRise page or donate today by clicking the "donate" button.
Zikomo kwambiri! We look forward to seeing you on the course, Saturday, September 7, 2019.
