One of Determined to Develop’s key projects is support for youth to attend school and further their education. This has remained one of the most evident needs in the community, and the request we hear most often from families and young people alike.

While primary school is free in Malawi, secondary school (high school) is not. School fees are often unaffordable for families, and are a common reason for school dropout. In cases where families are able to pay the fees, they may not be able to afford the associated costs of items such as pencils, notepads, uniforms, or exam fees. With the cost of school being a large burden on a family’s income, parents may only be able to send one child to secondary school, and boys are usually prioritized. In many cases, young Malawians never have the opportunity to experience secondary education.

Determined to Develop currently sponsors 240 students in secondary school, 13 students at college and university, and has helped sponsor over 1,520 students through school since it began.
