“Wallah, I feel this is a milestone for all Muslims in the country. I don’t know how many have graduated this year. I don’t know how many will graduate next year. Now we can see how we are moving,” says Sheikh Chabulika.
Zamzam Foundation has partnered Islamic Zakat Fund (IZF) to support 41 female Muslim girls to study Nursing program in all Malawi College of Health Science campuses.
