KASIMU EDUCATION FUND
May 28, 2010
The founders of Kasimu Education Fund or KEF, originally planned only to send some children from Manyesa, Malawi to high school for further education. Three girls have now graduated from High School and one is attending Nurses College. From this beginning, KEF has evolved into building a grammar school with the help of the local villagers. However, hungry children have a hard time learning without breakfast. We purchased three Rocket Stoves and provided the rice, corn and sugar so that each child can have one meal. The women now cook more easily without having to gather so much wood or getting burned. A micro-finance program was started to help the villagers gain more independence. This has been very successful with a high rate of repayment of loans. Now we are collecting funds to build a high school that will serve this community and the surrounding villages. The goal of KEF is to have the villagers self-sufficient by 2015.
