BENEFITING: Advancing Girls' Education in Africa

EVENT: Tri for Malawi 2015

EVENT DATE: Sep 13, 2015

THE STORY:

This year the Rock Creek Team is participating in this year’s Tri for Malawi Team Challenge to support girls’ education and empowerment in Malawi. Our Team is joining fifty other athletes to honor our girls who walk a triathlon-sized distance every weekjust to attend school. Together, we pledge to raise$150,000 to provide 190 disadvantaged but academically motivated young women with scholarships to secondary school this fall.

 

Together, our Team is competing to raise funds because:

  • Less than 7% of women in Malawi have graduated high school and less than 1% nationwide go onto high 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 the age of 18.
