Adopt A Malawi Student Campaign

“It is our passion to impact a life and change a nation one child at a time through funding education for students in Malawi, Africa.
We are all a part of a global community
and our aim is to fill a huge need.
For less than $2 per day/student we can accomplish our goal.”

It was only in 1994 that the government of Malawi
introduced free primary education.

It is still is a very costly and a difficult challenge
for most students to attend Secondary School.

Our aim and our success is helping students, by supplementing money they already saved for education - which is usually not sufficient
or paying their school fees.

Without this help, these students would not be attending school.



In 2005, Malawi had the lowest net secondary enrolment
in the world at 24%. 

Without a secondary level education, where do you go in life?


How much does it cost to go to school in Malawi?

A basic priority for our project is to fund students (many who are orphans with little means of support) to attend school and receive an education.  For a school year, depending on the school (public or private) and if the student will be boarded at the school, the costs are:

  • Primary School
    Tuition per student per Trimester – free
    Uniforms, books and supplies per Trimester - $15 ($45 per Year)

  • Secondary School
    Tuition per student per Trimester – from $20 ($60 per year) to $53 ($159 per year)
  • Uniforms, books and supplies per Trimester - $20 ($60 per Year)
    Boarding School – from $150 per Trimester plus uniform, books, school supplies $65


    With a population of approximately 14.5 million people,
    Malawi has over 1 million orphans.

    How much should I donate?

    This is what we can and will do with your donation

    $25 Buys notebooks, pens, a school uniform and perhaps a pair needed shoes

    $50 Buys student fees and board for 1 term (3 terms in one year) for a student to go to boarding school

    $100 Buys student fees to pay for 5 students for 1 term to attend day school

    $250 Buys an orphan student a uniform, shoes, notebooks, pens and other school supplies, school fees and feeds them for 1 school term

    Less than $2/day, $50/month, ongoing
    This w ill educate a child, with special consideration for girls who are orphans, so they have a safe place to stay, sleep, study, feed them, and pay their  school fees until they are finished secondary school.

    Consider over 80% of the people in Malawi
    live on less than $2.00 per day
