Monthly Nkhani (News)
Moni (hello), friend
Last month, Malawi was battered by Tropical Storm Ana. Hundreds of homes, schools, roads, and bridges were damaged and destroyed from strong winds, heavy rains, and severe flooding. Debris from the flooding crippled the hydropower stations leaving most of the country without power. This shut down schools and businesses, including AGE Africa’s headquarters and satellite offices in Malawi. 
Our team has worked tirelessly to ensure the safety and well-being of our scholars while assessing the storm's damage and the needs of our partner schools. Thuchilla Community Day Secondary School (CDSS) in the Mulanje District suffered devastating losses. The winds blew the roof off the school, flood waters destroyed books, and learning materials, closing school for two weeks. AGE Africa scholars assisted community members in clearing debris from the classrooms to accelerate school reopening. 
AGE Africa scholars at Thuchilla CDSS are back in school, but the loss of books and school supplies has created additional barriers to learning. Our scholars are eager to excel academically and need our support. We invite you to assist in rebuilding efforts by making a donation today to help replace books, school supplies and materials destroyed in the storm.
Zikomo kwambiri,
The AGE Africa Team
