"Students With Dreams changed our perspective on the magnitude of social problems as we dealt with them directly." - Ellen. Malawi is the World's poorest country. Two-thirds of the population are under the age of 25. They desperately want to contribute to their country's development, but have few opportunities. An under-resourced education system, focussing on memorization and competition, offers no opportunities to work collaboratively and creatively.


SWD is a unique programme in Malawi. It offers college students with innovative ideas for social change a chance to make them reality. Through training, mentorship and seed funding, dreams are turned into functioning projects, making a genuine difference in communities. Mentorship is delivered by SWD alumni, who are supported to use their experience of the programme to enrich the experiences of others through teamwork and creative methodology. SWD hopes to expand across the country.

Long-Term Impact

Students With Dreams creates pro-active, outward-thinking culture among students that encourages innovation, collaboration and mutual support. The social projects created - addressing issues such as gender inequality, human rights and HIV and AIDS - will actively engage hundreds of additional students and benefit thousands in the country. The program empowers young dreamers to initiate and lead the movement for social change in Malawi.
