Girls Mentorship Program
SOFF initiated a one-on-one girls mentorship program in 2020 with the aim of providing girls with guidance and a platform of exposure to useful information and opportunities. Since its inception, the number of mentors has increased from 10 to 26 this year, supporting 52 students in the central and southern regions.
In the year, SOFF also partnered with Girls Education Trust to organize a first ever girls empowerment retreat, aimed to inspire and empower over 200 girls from secondary schools across Malawi, of which 24 were recipients of SOFF’s scholarships from 15 secondary schools.

This year, SOFF hosted a Women´s Leadership and Networking Breakfast to raise funds for girls’ scholarships. The breakfast had over 50 partners to raise a target of MK 15,000,000 as well as share stories of change for investing in girls’ education.
