Sponsor a child through Secondary School
It only costs £240/year (£20/month) to sponsor a child through secondary school
Education is free to children up to the end of primary school but if they want to go on and get a full education (and hopefully go onto university) it costs £960 for four years at Secondary School. This pays for school fees, exam fees, school materials, boarding fees, food and school uniform.
From September 2016 we sponsored 40 teenagers to go to Secondary School. We are delighted that many of our previous sponsored students have completed school successfully, and some have gone on to university education.
We are looking for more sponsors for the 2017/18 school year – is that person you? – and we shall be looking for 10 new people to sponsor a child from September 2017. Please help give a child a chance of education and a way out of poverty.
To sponsor a child through secondary school please fill in this form and send it, with your payment, to African Vision Malawi, PO Box 851A, Kingston KT1 9FD. Alternatively, you can set up a direct debit, donate by bank transfer or credit card, all by clicking below:

An example of a Student Profile – Lonely Zefenia Banda:
Hello. My name is Lonely Zefenia Banda. I am 14 years old and was born on the 12th May 1994. I am in form 1B at Lilongwe Girls’ Secondary School. I started here in January, and I am really enjoying my time here.
I come from the Chimbalu area and went to Chimbalu Full Primary School. I have one brother who is 9 years old and 2 sisters one aged 12 who also goes to Chimbalu School and is in Standard 5, and one aged 17 who is married.
My favourite subjects at secondary school are English Mathematics, Bible Knowledge and Geography. When I finish at this school I want to go to University to train to be a nurse.
When I am not studying I enjoy playing football, watching films, reading books and writing folk tales.
I want to tell you that I am very happy that you pay my schools fees.
God bless you and thank you very much. If you did not help me I would not be able to go to secondary school.
I will do my very best in my studies.
