Keeping Girls in Education/Sponsorship
When Telina Munthali came to see Levison at the Centre, she was distraught. Telina has thrown herself wholeheartedly into the work of the Foundation and she’s been working hard at school too. She is 20 and a single parent orphan. Her mother had been taken critically ill and was no longer able to afford Telina’s school fees.
Telina is in 4th year. In 4th year the children have to take their exams in order to be able to proceed with further education, hence her despair. The reason that she is 20 and in that year is because, like so many others in Malawi, they go in and out of school, depending on whether fees can be afforded, or uniform or even such basic items as soap with which to clean their clothes, or pencils or notebooks with which to write.
Levison mentioned that there were four other girls of similar ages who had either had to come out of school or were in imminent danger of being forced out. Thanks to very generous sponsors in the UK and the States, we have sponsors for all five, allowing the girls to complete their education.
There are others, boys and girls, who are also having enormous problems and so if anyone would like to sponsor, please contact us. It costs £25/month to sponsor and covers school fees, uniform, school bag and necessities such as soap and school stationery.
