Bianca Phiri Youth Bursary


The Bianca Phiri Youth Bursary is funding established and earmarked for children and youth from marginalized communities in developing countries.

The bursary program is anchored on a belief in “transformative power of individuals as catalysts for broader change. “

This  bursary aims to expand access to high quality education for youth who exhibit academic promise, economic disadvantage or vulnerability, leadership potential , and a  commitment to giving back to society.

We believe insufficient and inequitable access to high quality education stands in the way of economic development and poverty eradication.
