ASHLAND, Ore.—The Southern Oregon football team has donated 60-plus T-shirts to Educate Chombo, a non-profit organization launched at the university to help girls in the village of Malawi, Africa get access to education.
The act of kindness was spearheaded by defensive coordinator James Gravelle, and is part of SOU’s larger effort to ensure the organization meets its goals.
Educate Chombo was founded by Dr. Megan Farnsworth, a professor in the School of Education at SOU. Upon learning from one of her students (who is from Chombo) that girls in the village didn’t have access to education, she launched the organization. Its three goals are to raise funds to build a school building in Chombo, begin a circulation library, and teach girls in the village how to read and the skills to begin cottage industries.
