Nandor Gergely, a long term volunteer, (who we miss dearly as he now works in NYC) and our Go! Malawi directors Griffin Banda and Solomon Nkhalamba took our top 6 elementary students to the BIG CITY of Lilongwe for a weekend last semester! This trip was a reward for their hard work and dedication to school and our after-school program!
They had never visited the city and had a blast touring Lilongwe and seeing government buildings, monuments, a wildlife center and they most definitely enjoyed the hotel and restaurants! This is one of the ways in which we are trying to foster interest, motivation and confidence in young students so they will have success and stay in school! Only 11% of elementary students in our area move on to high school. We are trying to change that!! Keep up the good work kids!
