REALIZING THE DREAM

In Chichewa, Malawi’s national language, Thandizo means assistance, and we assist selected Malawi students in realizing the elusive dream of a post-secondary education.

OUR FOCUS

THE PROGRAM

Improving the quality of life and creating sustainable wealth-building opportunity for Malawians will not be easy, but it begins with education.

THE NEED

What is truly heartbreaking about Malawi’s educational picture is that despite the impressive level of attendance in primary school (~85% of eligible students attend), attendance plummets at the secondary level, and thereafter less than 1% of Malawi’s youth are able to attend post-secondary university or technical training programs.
