NGO bails out 37 Dowa girls with scholarships

Dowa: A Local non governmental organization (NGO), ‘There is Hope’, which operates in Dowa, has assisted 37 needy secondary school girls in the district with bursaries covering tuition and school uniforms.

Speaking during the girls’ orientation workshop on the scholarships over the weekend, the organization’s Outreach Coordinator, Caesar Nkhoma advised the girls to work hard in their studies to achieve their dreams.

He further advised them to be prayerful, saying without God they cannot achieve.

One of the beneficiaries, Alinafe Masasa said she lost her father some years ago and had lost hope of continuing with her education after getting selected to Bzyanzi Secondary School in the district.

She promised to work hard in school and achieve her dreams.

She thanked the organization for providing scholarships to needy students to enable them access secondary school education. She said the bursary was a lifetime investment any caring organization can make on an individual.

In June this year (2018), the organization provided scholarships to 16 public and private university students to help them continue with their education.

District Commission Alex Mdooko, recently pleaded with NGOs implementing their programs in the district to consider sponsoring needy students in secondary schools, saying the council was overwhelmed and concerned with the number of parents asking for bursaries for their children.

‘There is Hope’ was founded by Innocent Magambi, a former Burundian refugee who has grown up in the Dzaleka Refugee Camp.

It provides university and secondary school scholarships to Malawian and refugee needy students as well as offering Bible and vocational skills courses at its Dzaleka campus.
