WHY SPONSOR?

Every child deserves the right to a proper education. Unfortunately, many children in Chikwawa, Malawi find themselves unable to attend school due to financial barriers, gender issues and in many cases, forced marriages. Help the Youth Coalition for the Consolidation of Democracy (YCD) in their efforts to protect and improve the livelihoods of children in Malawi through education and support. You will not only be affecting one child’s life but also their community as well as future generations to come.

Our organization is small therefore we take great care in our resources and use them wisely. You can rest assure 100% of your contribution will go straight to the child in need.

HOW IT WORKS

We provide a picture and profile of each child. You can choose which child/ren you would like to sponsor and find out more about them by clicking “More Info.” After you have chosen, check out our payment page which lists the costs of one school year. You can email us with your desired child and what you would like to contribute. We will send you our bank details where you can make a payment. Once the payment is complete, you can choose whether you would like to stay in touch with the child. We will provide updates every term (3 months). If you would like to send and receive letters from the child, we would be happy to arrange this.

SCHOOL IN MALAWI

Education in Malawi begins with pre-school (ages 3-5), however, disadvantaged children often do not have access to pre-school.

Next is primary school, which lasts for 8 years and is referred to as Standard 1-8. The official age range is from 6-13 years old, however, it is common to have varying ages as children are forced to drop out of school for a year or more due to financial or other circumstances.

After primary school, children move on to secondary school which lasts 4 years and is referred to as Form 1-4. The rate of completion of secondary school, especially among females is extremely low. Chikwawa district primary girls’ drop-out rate is currently at 29% and Malawi’s completion rate for girls to grade five remains significantly low.
