Tri for Malawi

AGE Africa’s scholars walk a triathlon-sized distance every week just to attend school.

To honor them, each year, triathletes join the Ambassador from the Republic of Malawi to the United States, H.E. Edward Yakobe Sawerengera, to compete in the Nation’s Triathlon.

The Tri for Malawi is in its 10th year as AGE Africa’s largest annual fundraising event! In 2018, Tri for Malawi team members will compete to raise $75,000 to support AGE Africa’s scholarship fund.
