Rosemary Pencil Foundation update from Malawi

Gillian Rose, President of the Rosemary Pencil Foundation based in the USA, recently visited CITW Malawi YES Club learners who are sponsored by her NPO. They embraced Gillian with smiles of hope, and those in their final year promised Gillian they would do their best for top school results so that they can make it to tertiary education.

Caroline Kamanga (right front) joined CITW in 2014 when she was nine years old and in primary Grade 5. Caroline is one of the YES Club members whom other youths were celebrating for being selected to go to Malawi University to study Taxation. Caroline is one of CITW’s great story writers and narrators. These smiles of hope and achievement are the greatest rewards that CITW sponsors receive.
