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.
