Warm Heart International in partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of Texas and the Anglican Diocese of Southern Malawi is sponsoring Education Empowerment Scholarships that benefits the person learning and the community in which they live. A $1,250 scholarship covers the cost of tuition, room, board, books, paper, and uniforms for one year.
The Solution
Over 2,500 students attend the four rural elementary schools. An “average” primary student is one of six children in his or her household, in which their source of income is agricultural labor of $1 per day. Education past the primary grades is optional and there are no secondary schools in the rural areas and so graduates of the rural primary schools are financially prohibited from attending high school.
