How your financial support assists the students and their country.

While the cost of tuition, books, living expenses, etc. present an overwhelming obstacle to healthcare educations for most Malawians, the investment of our dollars pooled together provide an incalculable value for the people of Malawi and other nations that Medica XXI eventually will aid. 

The course of study for these young men will run two years.  In each academic year the costs they will incur are:

Tuition fee:  K 150,000 (One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Kwacha)

Registration and administration fee:  K 5,000 (Five Thousand Kwacha)

Medical fee:  K 12,000 (Twelve Thousand Kwacha)

Student fee:  K 100 (One Hundred Kwacha)

Coation fee:  K 1,000 (One Thousand Kwacha)

At the current exchange rate ($US1.00: 140.61K) this amount is roughly $US 1,200.00 per year.  This is quite a financial difference to train Malawian physicians in their own country. This also allows them to be treating patients at home while they are in training; keeps them near their families; and contributing to their own economy.  This is a winning situation all the way around.

As non-resident students at the University, they also require support for housing, food and transportation, and also for stationary which is a very expensive item in Malawi.  We plan on equaling their lost wages as Clinical Officers of approximately $200.00 per month for support of these items.

No administrative funds are taken out of your donation.

You can donate towards the cost of a specific item for each of the young people, or as a one time donation.  Any amount is appreciated and goes 100% towards the costs of training and support for these students, and to identifying other worthy prospective physicians or towards other worthwhile ancillary projects that fit Medica XXI’'s mandate of supporting Global Healthcare for the 21st century. 

 All administrative costs are covered by The Denman Family.
