We support talented, intelligent and adept children from families with limited financial resources arising from difficult circumstances and who are attending poorly equipped rural primary schools to pursue their secondary education by working with them to reach their potential.

To be considered for the scholarship, the applicant must have received admission from one of the three community day secondary schools that we are supporting, have maintained outstanding academic achievement (a minimum average of B+ or higher) and be from financially challenged family.

Our emphasis in this application is a captivating personal story, explaining what impact this scholarship will have on your education.

Tomorrow is going to be a new era for the three rural secondary schools in Usisya (Bunga, Usisya and Khondowe). Multichoice Malawi in partnership with Mulika Foundation are launching digital learning equipment to these schools. This will be a new learning experience for over 1,000 beneficiary students.

Our sincere gratitude to Honorable Mganda Chiume, MP for Nkhata Bay North Constituency for accepting to grace this special occasion.

Tawonga, the Mentorship Program Coordinator will be delivering a speech on behalf of Mr. Kausipa Mkandawire, Founder and Executive Director of Mulika Foundation. Tekiyala, a student at one of the three schools and a scholar under Mulika Foundation, will be speaking on behalf of the students.

Through this partnership, we have provided digital learning equipment for the students and the school but what we can’t provide is the desire and thirst for knowledge. This difficult part starts with students and it starts tomorrow.

Tekiyala in his written speech says and I quote ‘it is education and knowledge that raises a nation to the pinnacles of progress and greatness’. We, as lucky kids and future leaders are determined to make this happen’.

We have added over 3,000 e-books and short stories to Mulika Foundation Reading Den. My daughter was excited and this is what she had to say poetically to inspire her fellow young ones…enjoy the reading…

By Shalom Abigail, 14.

Young ones
Short, small, tall, lean
Packed with creativity
You inspire me

You learn
to read, to write
To talk, to walk
You astound me

You learn
Something new and something old
That carries you through long days untold
Waiting for you
And you only
To do something
That'll help us all

These e-books,
Invite an adventure
Like all books
Allows you to venture

You are the future
You don't realize so
But motivate each other
And you'll motivate all

Mulika Inspire Awards (MIA)

The Mulika Inspire Awards are excellence awards for teachers, students and schools in rural areas. In Mulika we recognize that obstacles faced by rural kids; such as lack of school facilities, and the shortage of qualified teachers, significantly impede the quality of education. However, despite these obstacles, great efforts and extra work by these teachers and the commitment of respective students have often produced superb results. Such success can be attributed to remarkable school leadership and skilled, talented and dedicated teachers. The MIA acknowledges the extraordinary efforts made by these unsung heroes who go beyond their call of duty, often in very difficult conditions to motivate and inspire their scholars to perform well and rise above their poverty stricken background. Their efforts are a life time service to our rural children.

The Foundation’s aim is for every child to excel. MIA is designed to promote excellence in students by recognizing individual student performance, teacher’s performance and dedication, creativity and innovation in the schooling environment and approaches, thus encourage best practice in schools. The awards afford communities an opportunity to publicly recognize and say thank you to all outstanding schools, teachers, and students. The Inspire Awards recognize schools, teachers and students in specific areas and subjects.

African Library Project - Book Drives in Action

We are grateful to African Library Project for having launched a Book Donation Drive for Mulika Scholarship Foundation. The African Library Project is a great partner in the African continent and Malawi in particular. They coordinate book drives in the United States and partners with African schools and villages to start small libraries. The Foundation’s Reading Den (Library) needs books to support over 900 students in our rural and remote areas in Usisya, which is in Malawi, Africa. Our students often have poor school results and low levels of literacy. By the time they go into secondary school, many of them are still hardly able read or write fluently. Inadequate educational instruction, lack of reading resources and limited exposure to books inhibit the students’ potential to excel. The Book donation drive will help us to provide them with books that will inspire creativity, spark imagination, generate a thirst for knowledge and expose them to a broad range of information and experience.
Thanks Kip, Emily, Tommy, Cricket and Henry (KETCH) for organizing the book drive for us. We are extremely inspired!

Great work folks! The establishment of the Mulika Scholarship Foundation’s Reading Den (mini library) has now been completed. This marks a beginning of new experience for scholars and will revolutionize the way learning and education is delivered in the rural areas. The Den will support over 900 students and currently has over 1,000 books. When fully functional it will have tablets loaded with over 1,000 e-books, DSTV educational channels, computers, and TV screens. The Reading Den will also have educational videos in all science and art subjects including creative writing, hydroponics, aquaculture, and agripreneurship and fish polyculture. We believe that these facilities will enhance scholars’ academic performance and their social, creative, innovative and leadership skills. So scholars come and immerse yourselves in the world of reading, knowledge and imagination!

Incredible! Within one month of launching a book donation drive, Mulika Scholarship Foundation has mobilized over 1,000 books ranging from Malawi authorized secondary school textbooks to international secondary school level textbooks and literature books (novels and short stories). We wish to sincerely thank Malawi National Library Services in conjunction with Book Aid International for supply of over 940 books. We are also grateful to individual donors; Mr. Mathews Nyama in South Africa and Mr. Kausipa Mkandawire in Cote D’Ivoire for donating over 30 and 100 books respectively. To all our focal persons, partners, volunteers and well-wishers all over the world, the book donation drive is still ongoing. The Foundation’s Reading Den has a capacity of over 3,000 books to support over 900 students. We count on your support to lead and donate these number of books to meet the demand of our scholars.

Mulika Scholarship Foundation is running its second Mentorship event in Usisya for its first scholarship cohort drawn from Bunga, Usisya and Khondowe community day secondary schools. Scholars will have the opportunity to learn from experts and mentors on a number of topics including creative writing and a career in writing, the power of perseverance and how to attain academic success while operating in a difficult environment. Scholars will also learn on teamwork and self-learning skills. Mr. Chinduti Chirwa, a renowned retired journalist and former Press Officer will be presenting on Creative Writing and Career in Writing while Ms. Taonga Mkandawire, a young registered nurse will be presenting on the value of Persistence and Success and Mr. Mateche Gandali, a teacher by profession will provide tips to scholars on study and exam techniques. The diverse choice of presenters/mentors is to provide the local content and to embrace the concept of pairing seniors (older tutors) with young scholars and ‘peer teaching’ or ‘child-teach-child’ approaches.

About the Foundation

At Mulika Scholarship Foundation our vision is to inspire excellence, build character and promote higher learning by investing in highly talented and intelligent children that are keen to succeed academically and beyond but come from families in financially deprived and/or socially difficult circumstances to help them achieve a high quality of life, better career opportunities and thus exit the vicious cycle of poverty. We focus on young scholars from financially and/or social deprived families in rural and remote areas.

We seek to contribute to the improvement of the quality of educational output by instilling an unwavering resolve in these young scholars to want succeed despite the many obstacles and barriers they face. Though the creation of community day secondary schools have increased access to education in rural areas and is critical for the education of the majority of students in Malawi, many such schools, are poorly resourced and equipped and have limited access physical and technological amenities.

The Foundation provides both academic and institutional support. Our six main areas of focus are: scholarships, mentorship, prize competitions, Academic Tutorial Support (aka TutorCorps), School Institutional Support Initiative (SISI) , The Mulika Inspire Awards (MIA) and a mini Library (Reading Den). Our support aims at going beyond academic achievements. We support scholars in career development and developing key social and life skills by teaching decision making, helping them recognize their unique skills, gifts and talents and stimulating their intellectual curiosity.

Scholarship: Our merit and need-based scholarship program provides educational support in form of tuition fees to academically gifted students that are eager to learn, are of high moral character and aspire to succeed but are in the rural and remote areas and have been admitted into poorly resourced and equipped schools and come from financially challenged families. We aim to give such children an opportunity to achieve success despite their difficult conditions and reduce the dropout rate of bright and needy students. To remain on the sponsorship, beneficiaries will be expected to maintain good academic performance, good discipline and conduct. We continuously work with scholars, parents and teachers in schools to identify beneficiaries on the basis of merit and need. The depth and rigor of the admission process allows us to ensure that the right students earn admission and acceptance to the program.

Mentorship Program: Our mentorship program focuses on career development including through role model visits and talks, and work environment exposure through company visits and where possible, internships. Through this program we prepare scholars for a future beyond academic success by teaching decision making, and in helping them develop critical life skills. We believe mentorship has the ability to transform student’s lives, their families and ultimately the society they live in. Our mentors are drawn from a list of renowned retirees, thought leaders, eminent and guest speakers, professors, business men and women, doctors, lawyers etc. from within and outside the country. Mentors serve as role models. Our mentorship events and activities allow scholars to interact and learn from mentors and amongst themselves. We recognize the challenges many students face in securing internships, and in advancing their career aspirations or in setting up themselves as entrepreneurs. To deal with these challenges, we facilitate the process by bring in seasoned business professionals and entrepreneurs to participate in group mentorships and organized workshops in which scholars are drilled in business writing skills, presentation skills, public speaking skills and personal appearance.

Prize Competition Program: Our prize competition program seeks to stimulate scholars’ curiosity and help them recognize their unique skills, gifts and talents through regular competitions in a variety of areas. Through the program, we inspire and stimulate improved performance, encourage school retention of students, build student’s social life skills and propel them to succeed despite obstacles. It is a platform for scholars to showcase their talent and challenge themselves. We give scholars opportunities to engage in tailored competitive activities and receive extra help in their area of skill and talent. Our program is run by staff and volunteer experts as stipulated in the guidelines, principles and agreements. We focus broadly on literacy, numeracy and sciences, particularly, sciences, mathematics, selected sports, ICT, book reading, book-lending program, writers square/corner (essay & story writing), art (debate, quiz, drama, spelling & poetry contests). We welcome interested sponsors to fund any of the awards. The type of prizes and awards to be provided are prescribed in the competitive awards program guidelines. Sponsors can also convert their prizes and awards into scholarships to cover for Tuition fees for the winning scholar(s).

Academic Tutorial Support (ATS, aka TutorCorps): Our TutorCorps program is a unique partnership through which an individual with more experience, (Tutor) shares their knowledge, skills, information, and perspective with a younger less experienced individual (Tutee), with the goal of fostering and improving their learning in the specific subject/course areas in which the tutor is qualified. We also promote peer and cross-age tutoring. Our program taps from vast resources of seniors, retired, new graduates or school leavers and peers embracing the concept of pairing seniors (grand tutors) with young scholars, ‘peer teaching’ or ‘child-teach-child’ (peer tutors) approaches. This provides an excellent learning experience for all scholars of all grades and all levels to develop positive attitude towards study, achieve academic success, and become independent and confident. This supplemental instructional learning is either done by individual or group using innovative delivery model. We provide extensive help in all areas of junior and senior school education using the authorized secondary school education syllabus and core aligned text books that contain lessons, practices, and tests to help scholars learn. We help scholars develop independent learning skills, giving them the confidence and courage to confront new challenges and set and achieve their own goals. This is aimed at opening doors for them to meet their career and educational objectives and take advantage of future opportunities.

School Institutional Support Initiative (SISI): We recognise that with poorly resourced and equipped rural and remote schools and with the widening gap between the rural-urban divide, rural schools face serious challenges and rural students are finding it extremely difficult to compete with urban students. Yet this is where the bulk of the population resides, and where we have the highest levels of poverty. To help bridge this gap, we identify very specific development programs and initiatives that have direct positive impact to rural scholars. We also explore opportunities on how school facilities can be improved or made available. We foster a productive partnerships with individuals, philanthropist, organisations, government, students, teachers, parents and their communities to identify and support such development activities. The goal is to ensure improved student learning opportunities for higher academic achievement, and promote community confidence and pride in the school’s ability to meet the needs of all students. We hold regular talks with potential individuals and organisation sponsors and participate in fundraising campaigns.

Reading Den: In many rural and remote areas, poor quality of schooling, low levels of literacy and poor school achievement are common. By the time they are selected to secondary schools, many kids are struggling to read and write fluently. Inadequate educational instruction and reading resources, and lack of exposure to books means there is not much of a reading culture thus further inhibiting student’s potential. To address the need, our program has instituted a library (Reading Den) which we intend to use to inform and inspire creativity, spark ideas and imagination, generate a thirsty for knowledge and expose scholars to a broad range of human knowledge and experience.
