Congratulations To Scholarship Contest Winner!

22 Sep

“This is an opportunity of a lifetime!” says Martha, ” In Malawi, educational opportunities are thin for girls. Traditionally, most families in Malawi don’t believe that girls can contribute to national development. Due to pre-conceived ideas, they don’t see any reason for investing in girl’s education.”
