ETC - Chimwemwe

Dreams And Determination 

Chimwemwe Kamange from Kasungu District is a fourth-year student at Exploits University in Malawi. At 25 years old, she is the third child in a family of six children, and the only one in her family who has a college education.


Chimwemwe was admitted to Exploits University in 2013 and hoped to receive a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Although she was admitted and ready to start, but the cost for her education was too expensive and her parents didn’t have the means to help pay for it. But Chimwemwe didn’t give up, she had a dream and was determined to go to school. After searching for a while, she heard of the Educate the Children (ETC) and its efforts. Chimwemwe traveled more than 100 kilometers from Kasungu to the ETC office in Lilongwe to apply for a scholarship.


When the names of new ETC beneficiaries were released, Chimwemwe was thrilled to see her name as one of the applicants who received a scholarship. Thanks to the support from ETC, Chimwemwe will be graduating from Exploits University this year and hopes to contribute to the development of the Malawi nation.
