Kansas City, MO – January 22, 2018 – The Malawi Challenge, a global community service project and fundraiser to support education in Malawi, Africa, will hold a Kick-off Assembly on January 31, 2018 at 8:00 pm EST. The event is open to anyone who wants to learn more about this project and how they can help change a nation through education! Individuals can register for the free online assembly here.
The Malawi Challenge is open to all K-12 schools and students across the globe. There is no cost or minimum fundraising requirement to participate. In addition to fundraising, students can compete against each other in project-based learning contests in the categories of STEM; Architecture; Artistic Expression; Entrepreneurship; and Non-Profit Development. There are separate age divisions for High School and K-8 students. The three top winners in each division category will receive cash prizes. A panel of nationally recognized companies and individuals will help judge the contests. Some of the judges include HOK (a global design and architecture firm), Savvy Shields (Miss America 2017) and Ben Higgins (former TV star from The Bachelor who is now a social cause entrepreneur).
The Malawi Challenge will support two different schools – the Mtunthama Community Day Secondary School outside of Wimbe, supported by the Moving Windmills Project, and the Pothawira Academy in Salima, supported by The Global Orphan Project. The two non-profit organizations hope to raise at least $100,000 which will be shared equally between the two initiatives.
