Ride for Malawi 2022
In Malawi, less than 24% of girls are enrolled in secondary school, and less than 7% will graduate. Of the few young women who graduate, only 3% will qualify for post-secondary education, of which less than 1% will complete their degrees.
Join AGE Africa’s annual fundraiser and transform lives in rural Malawi by helping talented young women cross the educational finish line. Each dollar raised will directly support secondary and tertiary scholarships, after-school girls’ clubs, and our girls’ empowerment radio show.
Let’s ride together so every girl in Malawi has a chance to uplift her nation. #SheLeadsWeRise.
AGE Africa’s annual Ride for Malawi event supports our scholarship fund and afterschool life-skills education programs at partner schools. Our wrap-around approach utilizes peer-to-peer motivation, family, community, and national engagement to support adolescent girls’ needs. We partner with girls early in their education and oversee their preparation for university, vocational school, and entrance into the workforce.
On Saturday, September 9, 2023, join AGE Africa’s Board of Directors and the rest of our team on a 20-mile ride through the nation’s capital in the 2023 DC Bike Ride to support scholarships and life skills education for girls in Malawi.
