A HUGE THANK YOU to all of our #GivingTuesday donors! We exceeded our goal and raised over $3,500! This included a generous matching gift of $1,000 from a long-time DTS supporter.
We also want to wish a heartfelt thank you to ALL our donors in 2015 who have helped us provide a young Malawian woman with the foundation for a bright future through education. We could not do it without your support!
Welcome to Daughters of Toleza, Evidence!
In August, DTS Board selected Evidence (left) as the 2015 winner of the Daughters of Toleza Scholarship. She is 14 years old and lives with her grandmother in Chipwere Village.
She has started off well at Bakhita, finishing her first term of Form-1 ranked 30 out of 175 students. Her highest grades were in Agriculture, Chemistry, and Physics. Congratulations, Evidence!
Including Evidence, DTS will be supporting eight girls' this year. Three girls have started their fourth and final year at Bakhita Secondary School. We are looking forward to the graduation of the first DTS class this May!
DTS Interview Day
In July 2015, the DTS Malawian team interviewed 12 applicants for the DTS Scholarship. During the day, DTS team member Ezinala (far left) had fun dancing with the girls while getting to know them. Four girls were selected to take the Bakhita entrance exam and Evidence was then selected based on her exam results and her interview. Ezinala and the rest of the DTS Malawian team are employees at Toleza Farms. They mentor the girls, communicate with their families, and provide a direct link between the US team and Bakhita Secondary School.
