Currently, government funding only provides for primary education which means that families have to pay for their children’s secondary education after they have reached 12 years old.

In such an underdeveloped country, where most Malawians rely upon subsistence living, over 50% of the population lives below the poverty line and struggle to break free from this poverty cycle.  It costs just £20 a term for a Malawian child between the ages of 12 and 16 to go to school which in the UK is a very small amount of money but in Malawi is hugely expensive. This does include an exam fee.

Supporting children through secondary education will not only offer greater job prospects and a higher wage but will also help to make them aware of the risks of disease and disease prevention such as HIV/AIDS, thereby increasing theirs and their families chance of survival and standard of living.

Bright Future Foundation’s long term aim is to expand to other developing countries and develop different strategies that suit each country’s different educational systems.

Having the privilege of free education herself, Jasmin understands how knowledge sets you free from poverty. A wealth of knowledge can protect and promote nutrition, health and social issues.

Doreen works in childcare and receives £40 per month, whilst working 50 hours per week. In addition to this Doreen has to walk 3 and a half hours to and from her place of work.This £40 pays for her nieces education and feeds and supports 7 other members of her family.

Vincent and Ken are both cooks at a university in Malawi, they realise how important education is for people in their situation, they decided to write a short story on how important understanding nutrition is. The book challenges food myths and witchcraft which are common throughout countries in Africa. It also promotes free readily available food such as field mice and grasshoppers.
