Malawi, Africa

Sometimes all it takes is one ordinary person to bring about incredible change in the lives of others. You can join us on this life-changing journey to empower others, one at a time, to become agents of change themselves.

Malawi, in southeastern Africa, one of the least developed countries in the world is crippled by poverty. Children, women and men of Malawi have a huge need for physical, mental and spiritual transformation.

High School Scholarships

The Challenge

Half a million children in Malawi have been orphaned by the AIDS epidemic. Without an education there is little hope of escaping the cycle of extreme poverty that they find themselves in.

The only option for a high school education is to attend the state run boarding schools. The cost of attending is the biggest obstacle that these children face. The average annual income is about 340 USD per year. Students are required to pay for their school fees, food, housing, uniforms and books. Those who cannot pay cannot attend school.

Overcoming Obstacles to Education

Education is a powerful tool to fight ignorance and poverty and is a gateway for human and community development. Agape in Action promotes high school scholarships to send kids who are orphans or coming from very poor families to high school. 

In Malawi, high school graduates become an important resource for the family and the nation. We teach students who participate in this scholarship program to give back. When they finish school and begin a job we ask them to help provide scholarships for younger children. They do not need to be rich to help sponsor a child’s education. This creates sustainable development. 

You can make a difference in the life of a student.

A gift of $650 USD
