Thanks to the generosity of Penhros College, Como and Soroptimist International South Perth, 20 young girls have been given the opportunity to remain in school for the next year. They are some of the most vulnerable children at Mbwadzulu Primary School who would not normally be able to afford the small amount needed to remain at school.
Girls in Malawi have a very high drop out rate due to many cultural reasons and really need your help to receive a decent education. $20 will keep one girl in school for the year.
Malawi is in a state of famine at the moment and there is widespread hunger. If you can spare the cost of one meal, you can help a girl for one year.
