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 a village within 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 the brainchild of Mercy Kangunga, a graduate student at SOU who comes from the village of Chombo in Malawi — where girls have little access to education. With the facilitation of Dr. Megan Farnsworth, a professor in the School of Education at SOU, Kangunga launched the organization in an effort to make a difference in her hometown.

The non-profit's 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.
