Dear Friends,

AGE Africa has exciting news! We have joined Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, and former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, in a historic initiative for girls’ education that will put AGE Africa’s CHATS curriculum into schools across Malawi!

AGE Africa scholar Patricia (upper right), is an inspiring example of what we hope to accomplish. I met Patricia this July, while standing in her mud-walled classroom. In that bare room, furnished with a few desks and chairs and a single light bulb, Patricia told me her dream:

“I want to be the Minister of Finance.” 

Even though Patricia’s school is a two hour walk to the nearest paved road and over a day’s journey to the nearest city, and despite the fact that she learns in an environment that most of us would find intolerable; she has hope. She is an example of what happens when a young woman is given education, agency and a vision for what is possible.  AGE Africa’s CHATS program gives this vision to hundreds of young women annually.

Let our students know that you believe in the potential of every girl, in every village, every day, and that we want them all to dream big by making a gift this holiday season!

Zitheka! (It will be possible!)

Concepcion Gaxiola
Executive Director (Interim)
