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.
