Sade Lumi Education

Sade Lumi Education is a new organisation made up of passionate people who believe that educating girls will have a big impact on making our world a better place. 

We are a registered charity with the UK Charity Commission and working on expanding a list of people who would love to join our teams of volunteers, sponsors and partners in the UK and Malawi. 


Sade Lumi Education is run by a team of volunteer trustees in the UK:

Teele Dunkley, Renata Watts, Benjamin Ashford and Elizabeth Agar

and a great team of volunteers in Malawi led by Clanford Chirwa and Dalitso Nkhwazi

We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.

Our Mission

Sade Lumi Education objective is the advancement of education in Malawi through creating Sade Lumi International School -  a free secondary school providing formal education to young girls and women, including teenage girls with pregnancies and young babies, to help to relieve the pregnancy-related drop out from education. 

We aim to provide an educational environment where each student can develop and fulfil her potential, building their knowledge as well as self-confidence, including skills and desire to contribute to bettering their own communities.
