Using a legacy from CÃ©lia Diniz, a former Chair of the Board of Micaia Foundation who devoted her life to education, we have established a scholarship fund to offer girls the chance of secondary school education. The Celia Diniz Scholarship Fund will provide a guarantee for the full costs of 5 years of secondary school, subject to the girls passing the examinations at key stages.
In 2020, we began with five girls. In their first year at school, just outside of Chimoio, they have gained so much confidence, not to mention knowledge and friends. It is exciting to witness this transformation, and we want to create opportunities for many more girls.
The cost per student, including accommodation, food, uniforms, and books, is Â£80 per month â€“ a small cost for a life-changing opportunity.
We welcome all contributions large and small, and we guarantee that every Â£ contributed to this appeal will go to the Scholarship Fund.
