Empower Malawian villagers to make a difference

Summary

This project will connect student leaders from the US and Malawi to work towards better health and education among 2,000+ villagers across two villages in Blantyre. Since our goal is to build LASTING relationships, students partner with village leaders to tackle each village's needs on a case by case basis, finding unique and sustainable solutions to the problems they face.

Challenge

Because our mission is to empower individuals to tackle challenges in global health and education, the problems we aim to solve are diverse and unique to each community we work with. Our past challenges have included malaria prevention, education, and youth recreation. We work directly with village leaders to determine the individual needs of each village and implement an effective response to the problems identified.

Solution

Bwenzi empowers student leaders to work WITH these communities and provide them resources on their terms. For example, Bwenzi is not just about providing mosquito nets to fight malaria, but also getting them invested into their proper usage and importance. This is students rising up to build lasting connections and working together with those at-risk.

Long-Term Impact

Our students often cite these experiences as the beginning of their transformation into truly global citizens. We focus on the same groups of communities, so that we can work with community leaders to empower and lift up their people, especially their youth, to become participants and stakeholders in their health and education.
