We are a non-profit organisation (NPO) with the aim of developing children to a place of self reliance by providing support in education. The mission of The Hudson Mtegha Foundation is to encourage education of the girl and boy child of Malawi,more specifically children of Phwamphwa, by providing financial support.
Our vision is based on the compelling truth that providing education is the key to the survival of the human race. It is also the key to a better tomorrow and building an economically vibrant society and country as a whole. All children have the right to access education that will prepare them to succeed in life, contribute economically and to become engaged citizens.
The Hudson Mtegha Foundation is the vision of Professor Hudson Mtegha, inspired by the passion Hudson has in education for the African child, as he believes that education is the corner stone and it is through education that the African child can have a bright future and be able to be equipped with skills to compete in the global arena.
The first launched project was the adoption of a school at Phwamphwa and provided school uniforms; exercise books, pens and pencils for needy learners; solar panel with battery and bulbs for standard eight learners. The situation on the ground in Phwamphwa is that only a small fraction in the past 15 years has been able to qualify to gain entry to government secondary schools and end up with a high school qualification that will enable a learner to gain access to tertiary education.
The second phase is provision of financial resources to deserving students and thus ensures academically promising children have the resources to have an education and that no child should not have access to an education because of financial constraints. The aim is to transform lives through essential initiatives in education and training.
