In a move that is aimed at empowering girls to attain quality education, Maranatha Private Academy has offered 40 Scholarships for girls to Shaping Our Future Foundation.
Expected to start in September, 2022, the scholarships are worth K240 million.
Founded by Malawi’s First Lady Madam Monica Chakwera, Shaping Our Future Foundation aims to ensure that all Malawians especially rural women and girls prosper and realize their full potential.
Updating Malawians through her Facebook page on Tuesday, Madam Chakwera said the good news was announced recently when the Academy’s Director Dr. Earnest Kaonga and his team paid her a courtesy visit.
Madam Chakwera explained that the academy has also offered places for bright students from other schools at subsidized fees.
“I am so grateful for this gesture and I would like to encourage others with the capacity to support our work to come forward that together we can support and educate more students especially rural girls who have no means to pay for their school fees,” emphasized Madam Chakwera.
“Remember when you educate a girl you educate the whole nation.”
