Chifundo Reaches Canada!

We express our sincere thanks to GeoScan Subsurface Surveys Inc. & Xradar BC Inc. The Vancouver based companies have come together and approximately 14 members of staff will be taking part in the BMO Vancouver Marathon on the 3rd of May to raise funds for Chifundo.

The team are well into preparations for the marathon with each participant taking a distance to challenge themselves. Distances vary from the full-marathon, to half, to team relays where 4 members contribute to the full-marathon distance together.

Fundraising is also going well for the group with some fundraisers planned in the near future. If you would like to contrubute to their efforts you can do so here; https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11383866_geoscan-xradar-s-page.html

All funds raised will contribute to the educational costs of the foundation.

Every little helps in Malawi!

Oxford University opportunity for chifundo

Friend of Chifundo Aoife Cryan has come up with a unique opportunity for the Charity at Oxford University where she is studying for her Doctorate. As well as her academic prowess Aoife is also captain of the University Gaelic Football Team.

In preparation for their annual match with Cambridge Aoife persuaded her Dad, Paul to sponsor the jerseys for the ladies team. Paul and Niamh who have a long association with Chifundo decided that rather than using a Company’s Logo they would offer this valuable opportunity to Chifundo to use our Charities Logo on the University Jerseys for all their games. (See Oxford University new strip)

Unfortunately the Inter Varsity game planned for the 23rd Feb had to be postponed and now Aoife and her team are awaiting their next fixture. They will inform us of the planned date and hopefully some Chifundo friends will be present in Oxford as will Paul, Niamh and other family members. This is a wonderful opportunity for the Charity, particularly at a time when our first students are entering University in Malawi.

Many of you will remember Paul and Niamh who have both served as Directors of the Chifundo Foundation. Any of you who followed our Annual Golf Classic through the photo gallery may be surprised to know that Aoife and her sisters were the photographers for all the early years.

Thanks Aoife and good luck to Oxford.
