My name is Mary Mangwiza Manyusa and as a Malawian I really cannot find the right words to express the wonderful work the Kasimu Education Fund (KEF) is doing for the people of Manyesa, Malawi especially the young boys and girls who are the future of the nation of Malawi. The little ones would have died of malnutrition if it were not for the meals KEF provides for them. A lot of girls and boys drop out of school because they are orphans and they cannot afford to pay school fees for their own children. So Kasimu Education Fund is helping a lot of People in Malawi. To the people of Malawi, the Kasimu Education organization is the best women's non-profit making organizations. I pray that KEF covers the whole country in the near future.
I met Bob and Mary Burns during a school support project in N. California and became increasingly familiar with the Kasimu Education Fund over the past several years. As a professor emeritus in education and former member of the Commerce Faculty at the University of Nairobi, I know the challenges they have faced in Malawi. I have watched this project grow in amazing ways with whatever support they could muster. The project is especially well-conceived and little by little it is impacting more and more children and their families. While it has been some time since their request, now that I have retired, I intend to follow up on my promise to go there and conduct teacher training, something I have done in several locations. It is a joy to write anything about Kasimu and support this project in any way I can. Their service is genuine and exemplary and continues to inspire me to carry on with the service I do in the highest and most loving manner. They have long ago retired and have made this their lasting contribution to simple, yet incisive human goodness.
