Monthly Nkhani (News)
Moni (hello), friend
With the new year around the corner, we want to share some highlights of the successes made possible because of your support. Together we ensured that 100% of our scholars returned to school and completed the school year. In late spring, we launched our post-secondary scholarship program and have since awarded 32 scholarships for young women studying at universities and vocational schools. In addition, our Let's CHATS radio program is broadcasting nationwide, reaching four million girls throughout Malawi!
As a result of the pandemic, we face a new challenge in 2022 - the doubling of secondary school fees. Today, we need your support so our scholars can remain in school and continue their education.
We remain inspired by our scholars' success and are committed to leveraging our wins despite the ongoing pandemic and expanding our programs so more girls in Malawi can access education. Together, we can help our scholars complete their education and build prosperous lives for themselves and their families.

Thank you for being part of the AGE Africa family.

Featured Alumna - Hanna Molande
"My name is Hanna Molande and I study in form three at Misanjo Community Day Secondary School in Mulanje. A lot of girls in my community are dropping out of school due to a lack of resources and role models. They don’t dream big because they think life in the village is fine.

I want to help my community by making sure that every girl stays in school and find more ways to provide strong moral support."
School Fee Update
Starting in January 2022, school fees in Malawi will nearly double. We are committed to maintaining our 0% dropout rate into the new year.

We invite you to partner with us this holiday season to help ensure that all of our scholars continue their education.
