We don’t have a great deal of news about Martha but then, as we are discovering, sometimes that is no bad thing. For orphan girls like Martha life in Malawi is tough and often more ‘bad’ things than good seem to happen in people’s lives.

We are therefore delighted to hear that she has passed four out of her six exams at MSCE level and will continue her education in Blantyre and sit the remainder next year. She has a sponsor and should be able to go to college all being well. Martha still has dreams of becoming a nurse but it would seem that this career path will be unrealistic for her. Nevertheless, the proposed course in secretarial skills and IT will provide her with the opportunity of a good job in Malawi.
