Monthly Nkhani (News)
Moni (hello), friend
As we enter the season of gratitude, AGE Africa is celebrating the ways our scholars and alumnae are agents of positive social change in their communities.

This Novemeber, we invite you to celebrate how far we have come together. We've put together the following stories to bring the warm heart of Africa to you. As always, we are grateful for your support and for playing a part in helping dreams come true.

Featured Alumna - Shelter Matitha
Shelter Matitha, an AGE Africa alumna, is among the 9% of women pursuing degrees in STEM at universities in Malawi. At the national Let’s CHATS Radio launch in October, she shared her story of being the first person in her family to attend university and the importance of women in technology. 

“If it wasn’t for my AGE Africa scholarship and CHATS clubs, I wouldn’t have made it to where I am today. During CHATS we discussed topics that impacted my life...I learned confidence, self-awareness, and determination to finish my education. It made me work hard in class and here I am in college.”

In Malawi, less than 1% of women complete tertiary education. Click here to sponsor a scholarship.
AGE Africa Scholars Giving Back
AGE Africa scholars make a positive difference in their communities. This past month, students studying at St. Mary's Secondary School volunteered at a local health clinic, cleaning facilities and thanking the medical staff for their service. They also enjoyed speaking with the nurses about the day-to-day experience of working in healthcare.
When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.

Quote of the Month
"My dream is to help my community by ensuring they have access to technological devices such as phones, radios and televisions and support them to learn how to use these devices for easy communication and access to information."
