Earlier this week we received an update on all the recent educational endeavors by our amazing young learners.
“Great things are now happening in the Chifundo foundation. With happiness, we bring to your attention that all the 6 children who sat for the Malawi School Certificate of Education have passed” with 5 of the children likely in a position to advance to University to continue their studies.
A huge congratulations go out to everybody on passing their exams. It is an incredible achievement. A special note of congratulations to Salomy, who amassed an incredible 8 distinctions (The highest mark possible) out of her 9 exams.
To add to that – Out of the 9 children who sat the State Exams (hoping to advance to secondary school), all 9 were successful in advancing to secondary school and will attend a variety of government & private schools. Congratulations again to all!!
Both Vincent & Precious (pictured above) are starting a carpentry apprenticeship with local carpenters after showing a keen interest & natural talent at the carpentry workshops they attended on campus last year. It’s incredibly encouraging to see these young men take this big step and we have no doubt they will continue to do us all proud and will develop into fine carpenters. We look forward to seeing them both back on campus soon to pass on some of their learnings to their peers.
On the University front, both Chifundo college students are successfully advancing too, with Eric Phiri and Davie Katung having started their 2nd & 4th years respectively last week. We wish them both the best of luck as they continue their studies.
Finally, we extend a warm Chifundo welcome to our newest Junior enrolees. Welcome; Emmanuel, Connex, Eliza, and Shantero – They all join the programme at Standard 1.
