Education Programs

Support Girls Education in Malawi

 

DALLAS, TX – September 23, 2020 –  GeoShack is proud to sponsor education programs through Orant Charities.  GeoShack recently sponsored 42 students who otherwise would not have had the opportunity for an education.

Orant Charities Africa works closely with a number of schools to sponsor and support girl students who would not otherwise be able to obtain an education.

In Malawi, there is no free education beyond eighth grade. Students must pay for tuition and few students can afford it. Without a secondary education, most children will return to their villages to work on farms or get married and start a family at a young age. This path almost always leads to a life of deep poverty.

The situation is almost always worse for young girls. Male education is prioritized in Malawi and girls are often forgotten or purposefully mistreated. Forced child marriage is still prevalent in Malawi. Orant focuses our education funding on girls because they are the most vulnerable.

Orant keeps a record of impoverished students who have the required grades and are interested in continuing their education. Then, they work to ensure that all students who would like to study and cannot afford to are matched with donors who can pay for their schooling and basic supplies. Orant monitors their sponsored students’ progress through regular site visits and stay in touch with them after graduation.
