Ndovi’s book is available on the following link

“I am requesting Malawians to support me by following the link and downloading PDF, Kindle or e- Reader versions to read the story,” she told Nyasa Times in an interview.

Asked what motivated her to write the story, the soft-spoken Ndovi said she wrote it with an aim to generate funds for her NGO ‘Tinyade’.

Her NGO is currently working around Chintheche in Nkhata Bay, northern Malawi.

“When I saw the advertisement calling for entries, I just thought this could help me to generate funds for ‘Tinyade’,” said Ndovi.

Through Tinyade, she works with primary school girls to bring drop outs back to school and to keep in school those that are at a risk of dropping out.

Her decision to compete for the award will not only help put Malawian writing on the map but also help girls get their education as 90 percent will be channeled to ‘Tinyade’.
