The cost of Scholarship is $2500 per student per year a committee headed by Jaishri Patel and Raheema Bhana will screen the students and the families to pick the appropriate students.The school’s population is racially and religiously diverse.It is of note that Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC ,anchor of “the Last Word” runs a philanthropic organisation to provide Desks for schools in Malawi and also gives out scholarships. The donations are tax deductible.
Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world situated in the south-central part of the African continent.It is land-locked and has a population of less than 20 million.The country was part of the British colonial empire and won its independence in 1962.The British Government solely used Malawi to provide cheap labour for the gold and diamond mines in South Africa and did very little to develop its infrastructure and its economy.
We would like to interest you in sponsoring or contributing towards a pool of funds that would be used to pay towards the education of the needy students at Nyasa International Academy located in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in south east Africa.
Nyasa International Academy is a school which is operating on a not-for-profit business model, where funding is used to provide scholarships for deserving students, who could not otherwise have been able to afford the standard of education provided. As such, it provides a valuable window of opportunity for talented students from less advantaged backgrounds, who aspire towards extricating themselves from the vicious cycle of poverty and deprivation.
The Academy started as a Montessori school in 1982 in Malawi- fondly known as the “Warm Heart of Africa”. Rubina Hajat, the founder, wanted to build a school that provided a high quality, affordable education to children from all social and economic classes based on a non-for-profit model. We have expanded into a Primary and Middle School.
