Raising funds for adolescent training and girl empowerment camps in Malawi in East Africa. The aim of this campaign is to improve the living standards of the most vulnerable and marginalized members of the Malawi community, including orphans, girls, extremely poor women, and patients with incurable diseases such as AIDS, cancer, and others requiring palliative care.
We are working towards this by empowering girls in rural villages and investing in their future through access to education and community programs. We intend to provide various forms of support, including: paying for a month's education, school uniforms, an entire school year of education, bicycles to get to school, and even sending a girl to university for a year or through college after high school.
Overall, the goal is to transform the lives of those who are most in need in the community.
