Stella Nova Fundraiser
Organized by: Stella Nova
EVENT DATE Jul 20, 2015
Stella Nova is a star suddenly becoming thousands of times brighter. Stella Nova Fundraiser aims to be pricking to the caterpillar resting in girls in Malawi to unfold its potential for them to become bright shining butterflies.
Stella Nova Fundraiser will pave the route to secondary education for girls in Malawi.
After years of working across Africa, I have met the human faces of girls’ illiteracy, girls’ inferiority, child marriage, girls victimized by violence, teenager pregnancy and the childbirth complications oftentimes following because girls fall pregnant when still just children.
A turn to secondary education can help prevent those injustices.
Education is a birthright; education is social transformation; education is a playground for potentials to be pricked to, unfolded and inspired. Everyone is born with a potential. Yet still the female potential is unexplored and unlocked in so many corners of the world, including Malawi.
At girls' critical crossroad between education and marriage, taking the turn towards secondary education can make a tremendous difference.
Girls’ education is not just a turn towards unlocking and empowering female potential to rise and strive in their own worlds - girls' education is also a golden gateway to healthier families, healthier communities and healthier societies. Malawian girls with a secondary education can become change makers in their worlds.
Stella Nova Fundraiser in Action
Malawi became my second home. Malawi’s heroines inspired me; in Malawi the female potential became a cause of my heart; in Malawi I understood the small difference between resting as a caterpillar and blooming as a bright shining butterfly. In Malawi I humbly came to appreciate how sometimes the right and small effort can yield a grand shining transformation in individuals.
In Malawi Stella Nova Fundraiser was born, and now I pledge you to join us in letting those girls become the bright shining butterflies they are born to be. Join us in equalizing and unequal world. Join us in making a difference. Join us in filling up the classrooms at Mary Mount Secondary School in Mzuzu in Northern Malawi with 20 new girls in one year. Mary Mount Secondary School is one of the most recognized boardingschools in Malawi in service of the female potential.
The Mark We Leave Behind
Mary Mount Secondary School is attracting girls from across Malawi. Stella Nova Fundraiser will pave the route for those girls who are capable and committed potentials to enter secondary school in Mzuzu and Dezda, yet still unable to, due to the financial barrier:
This is a barrier we can help remove:
Secondary school fee per girl: $4660 ($1165 per school year)
Additional costs per year (school uniform, ID card, entry examination fee, mosquito net etc.): $140
# If for some reason you want to contribute directly in Denmark, Mozambique, Sweden, Malawi or the US please get in touch.
