Following the immense success of previous years, this year’s event promises to be another glorious day of golf and fun!

This year we want to ensure that we fully load the course TWICE (!), so please invite friends and colleagues to attend – it’s a great day and they will thank you for it!

Norwegian Prime Minister emphasizes the importance of education for girls in Malawi

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, during a visit to Malawi has emphasized the importance of education, in particular for education of girls, for the development of the country.

According to the Norwegian Norwegian Ambassador Asbjørn Eidhammer, “educating girls is the single most powerful investment for development. When you educate a girl, you educate a nation.”

A more detailed article on these comments and the Norwegian visit to Malawi in an article on AllAfrica.com available here.

While Chifundo’s education programme caters for roughly equal numbers of girls and boys, the importance of the education girls is of great importance to Chifundo. The imperative for Malawi’s development of good sexual and reproductive health and the central role of the mother as a key influencer in the family unit makes the education of these young girls a key concern.
