My name is Saidi. I am a Malawian, and the first born of five children in my family. I am currently attending Malawi Polytechnic studying accounting. I am a self-motivated, determined, and focused person who wants to create a better future for Malawi. I am a person of integrity and I do not give up easily. I realize I have a big role to play to support myself and my family in the future.

My parents encouraged me to attend school and support me in my life spiritually and socially. My parents, however, do not have a stable source of income. They earn money to feed us through farming. Unfortunately, they do not earn enough to provide basic needs. They cannot afford to provide everything we need.

Good Soil Partners has helped me to achieve my goals and succeed in life. I want to finish my education and be a financially independent person who is happily married and supporting my family, parents, and relatives and other people in need.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I sponsor the same student?

Length of sponsorship for a student is your choice. We are thankful for the donations we receive. Good Soil Partners would be grateful to receive sponsorship of a student that follows her/him through their education either in secondary or college/higher education.  It would be great if you could help a child from their teenage years all the way through to them being productive adults thriving and helping the future of Malawi succeed.

What does my donation go toward?

The costs involved for each student ranges based on their particular circumstances, some of the things we provide are; tuition, room and board, food, school supplies and fees, school uniforms, computer, leadership training, as well as career & development opportunities.

Are other people sponsoring the same child?

People may be sponsoring the same child depending on your total donation and the cost of the students school and examination fees, school supplies, school uniforms and basic needs of secondary students. College students may also have more than one sponsor due to cost of tuition fees, stipend for boarding and food, writing materials and a computer.
