Financial Information

The Partnership holds two accounts - Bursaries and General.

The Bursaries account holds the funds for bursaries for secondary school students. The partnership aims to provide a constant flow of funds to the Dedza District Assembly to ensure that any student we start to support is able to complete the full four years of secondary schooling. For this reason, accumulated funds are held in reserve in this account and an agreed sum is transferred to Dedza each school term.

The General account is used to hold funds that have been received for specific projects in Dedza that the Partnership is supporting (eg the guardians' shelter at the hospital). It is also used for the costs of some of the Partnership's activities (eg the shipping container).
