MMF Thompson Scholarship Fund

Why we need your help

Jack and Phyllis Thompson first arrived in Malawi in 1970 when Jack was appointed as a teacher at Livingstonia Secondary School and they both became fully involved in the life of the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia. Through classroom teaching, historical research, postgraduate supervision, educational leadership and, above all, through the friendships they formed with Malawian colleagues and students, Jack and Phyllis made an impact that will long be cherished. Jack died in 2017 and Phyllis in 2018, their loss greatly mourned both in Malawi and in the UK.

Thompson Fund banner

In recognition of their lives and work, the Thompson Scholarship Fund was launched in 2018 to provide the opportunity of a secondary education to girls who would otherwise miss out due to lack of means.

From January 2021 the Thompson Fund will support four girls at Embangeweni School for Deaf Children. Three 'Thompson' girls started their secondary education at Embangweni School for Deaf Children in September 2019. They will be supported by this Fund until they complete secondary school - that will be six years. The original campaign reached its target and so this new page is open to support at least one extra girl at the same school.

Both Jack and Phyllis supported education in Malawi throughout their lives and were acutely aware of the particular need for financial support to girls and young women at secondary school and university. Any funding which directly enables girls to stay at school makes a difference to their lives, the lives of their present and future families and, we all hope, to the Nation.
