Founder of the foundation Banonie Mwale said the foundation believes that young people deserve exposure to opportunities for advancement.
“Our vision is to create a world in which young people especially in rural areas hold power to create opportunities for themselves and others through education, business and motivation,” said Mwale.
Mwale said currently the foundation is working in Nkhotakota North with an objective to increase enrolment rate in primary school and create opportunities for young people.
“We have plans to reach out to many areas but this will depend on the availability of sponsors but as of now, we are working in Nkhotakota North only and our dream is to cover Nkhotakota as a district and the whole Malawi.
“We want to increase enrolment by 20 percent through our program of building nursery and primary schools by 2020. Apart from increasing enrolment rate in lower classes, we would also want to reduce secondary school dropout rate and increase pass rate by 10 percent,” he said.
He disclosed that the foundation is planning on extending the project to other areas and urged well-wishers to support the initiative.
The foundation has constructed nursery school and the construction of a primary school is currently underway.
Meanwhile, the foundation and Jenny Naylor Nursery School will be officially launched on November 24, 2017.
