CFED CORE PROJECTS

Adopt a Child Project

Since its establishment, CFED had carried out a number of projects. One of the projects is
Adopt a Child which has been working towards reducing the number of girls that drop
outs of school due to lack of school fees, uniform; development fee and other basic
school needs. The project connects needy students to well-wishers to support their
education. The support is either directly between the sponsor and the beneficiary or
through CFED. This is open to any well-wisher willing to support a child in form of either
cash or materials such as school uniforms, shoes, notebooks, ball points or development
fee contribution. We have close to 20 students in secondary schools under the bursary
programme.

Tiwerenge Project

Tiwerenge is a newspaper reading project that buys newspapers for schools. The aim is to
bring current affairs closer to students and also improving the reading culture among the
school-going children. Currently, five schools in Chilomoni Township namely; Mulunguzi
CDSS, Michiru CCAP Primary, Mulunguzi Primary, Lumbira CDSS and John Paul II
Leadership & IT Institute are receiving free copies. Other schools are Ntambanyama
primary school in Thyolo, Kankhate primary school in Mchinji and Livingstonia CDSS in
Rumphi. Each of the schools receives a Weekend Nation copy every week.
