MALAWI THANDIZO FUND
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”
– Nelson Mandela
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.
Improving the quality of life and creating sustainable wealth-building opportunity for Malawians will not be easy, but it begins with education.
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.
Malawi Thandizo Fund is a non-profit Alaska corporation founded in 2018 by Michael Moora, a retired engineer and long-time volunteer with Engineers Without Borders – USA.
