Butterfly Scholarship

A butterfly begins as a caterpillar in a cocoon. With time, patience and hard work it breaks free and eventually outcomes as a beautiful butterfly full of colour. The butterfly is the inspiration behind the butterfly scholarship. Girls too need mentorship, guidance, perseverance, support, and resources to nurture them in order for them to grow and develop their potential. This scholarship aims to support young girls in Malawi with the resources to help them achieve that. The scholarship will provide MK100 00 per term which is going to be shared amongst 5 girls. The money will cover school fees and stationery materials.
