Esmelda Chirwa, Master in Public Health

Esmelda and Moira

At a joyous ceremony in Glasgow on 26th November 2019, Esmelda Chirwa was awarded a Masters Degree in Public Health with distinction. Esmelda has been a student at Glasgow Caledonian University since September 2018. She is from Blantyre in Malawi and has acted as an advisor to our Board for most of her time here. We have appreciated her input and advice during our discussions. She spoke to our AGM in October about girls’ education in Malawi. She told us how lucky she has been in terms of education but provided statistics to illustrate her point that many Malawian girls are seriously disadvantaged in terms of education.

Esmelda returns to Malawi this week and we wish her well in her future career. With committed, hardworking and socially conscious young women like her, Malawi’s future seems bright.

MMF Trustee, Moira Dunworth, was privileged to be able to celebrate her graduation with Esmelda and her family.
