“Make it Count by sponsoring one of our 60 Students in Malawi. We also have Women’s Empowerment Centres in the Districts of Ntcheu and Chikwawa. So Come and be a part of the solution. We have been working around the clock to ensure you have an unforgettable night,’’ says Fikelephi Jackson who has also authored a book ‘Against All Odds I survived’
