Other DCTA Programs To Learn About
Sponsor a Student
Connect in and change a life by sponsoring a high school / college student who needs to leave school because of lack of funds.
Your student writes you a letter each month telling you about their life and educational progress.
DCTA connects you to a teacher/classroom in a rural area in Malawi. You will send them a box/s of school supplies four times per year. We have seen 50% higher test shores in classrooms that participate in the Teacher Connect program. You Do Not Need to be a Teacher to Participate.
