    I am 37 year old single mother of three. I went back to secondary school in 2013 and got selected to study a Bachelor Degree in Education, Social Studies at the University of Malawi, Chancellor College. I have completed my second year and yet to start my third year. And luckily, my first born child, my daughter, has also been selected to pursue her degree in Communication and cultural studies at the same College. This means that I have to pay tuition for my daughter and myself, which I cannot manage due to financial . Am looking for a grant for myself, so that I should be able to pay for my daughter.
