The fund is named after Linda Nelson. Linda was a teacher at Fortrose Academy in the Highlands of Scotland where she taught Geography, a subject that she loved.
The Fund that she set up in 2006 was principally to help provide bursaries for Further and Higher Education after attending school. Following Linda’s death from cancer in 2006 the fund is now managed by a small committee of friends, colleagues and family with strong connections to Fortrose Academy Malawi Schools Link.
The fund helps to improve educational provision for pupils of Mulanje Mission Community Day Secondary School. This includes raising money for further education bursaries to help students find employment and also helping raise money to provide school facilities. It can be used for children who have started education and would otherwise be unable to finish or for those who can not have education because their families cannot meet the costs. Girls have equal access to the funds as boys. Please donate to support our cause.
We provide funds to a local committee in Malawi who identify students that wish to get further education after secondary school. They also provide ideas for projects witrhin the school grounds that we help to provide funds for. The Malawi committee is made up of the Headteacher, 3 teachers, the Parents Association Committee chairman and other co-opted members as required.
