About Jimmy Banda
Jimmy Banda is one of our Chisomo Scholar Athletes living in Chinsapo, Malawi. He knows how important it is to work hard because his dad has shown him how he works to provide for their family of 9 as a minibus driver. Even with working long hours, he is only able to provide 2 meals a day of n'sima and fish for his large family. Jimmy is thankful that he has that nourishment to give him the energy to perform well in high school and do his favorite activity- playing soccer. As part of the Chisomo Idea soccer team he has access to valuable spiritual mentorship, social interaction with his peers and physical exercise. Jimmy's mentors have impressed upon him to value of education and intellectual development. Jimmy loves to study math in school and hopes to go to college and study to be an accountant.
