Pocket change for change
Educate a child for $3.
Hope for the Future Primary School in Kachere, Malawi exists because of a need. We’ve noticed how lack of education in this community affected everybody, effectively keeping every generation stuck in a vicious cycle of poverty. It is estimated that 70% of the adults in the rural areas of Malawi are illiterate. Uneducated parents don’t send their children to school, thus perpetuating the constant problems Africa has: poverty, sickness, corruption. We wanted to break this vicious circle, to initiate a change that will ripple through the next generations. The solution: a school.
