Fundraising for science education in Malawi

What an absolutely fantastic day and turn out for the Malawi fundraiser which was held on the 6th October at UWA. It was a beautiful and fun day for volleyball, face painting, soccer, a barbeque, robot activities and fun games. The event was organized by the Rotary of Crawley (Australia) and the African Students Union of the University of Western Australia (UWA) with the support of the Malawian community in Perth.

Thank you so much to all those who came, participated, donated and helped out.

The event brought together many Malawian, Zambian, Zimbabwean and Australian families, sports fanatics and spectators. The volleyball champions were the Cloud Bursters and the soccer was won by an all Malawian team Zamunda FC captained by Peter Mafuleka and Mcfeezie Tambuli. Zamunda F.C. used the event on Saturday to launch a Malawian national football team in Australia.

We raised $9707.66 – thanks to our major sponsor Paladin Energy, other corporate sponsors Aurecon Group, McRae Investments and Globe Metals and Mining. Also through donations, team registration, sausage sizzle. Less our expenses, $8,413.90 will be split between the two schools in Malawi: Mzuzu Academy for youth leadership training and Nkhomboli CDSS for science education. We envisage that the hand over will be done in November.

Thank you all once again.
