Serving from Lilongwe City to the most rural regions.

Malawi

Opened in January 2022

Malawi remains one of the poorest countries in the world. Over 50% of the population lives in poverty.

Their economy is heavily dependent on agriculture which employs nearly 80% of the population. They are very vulnerable to droughts and extreme weather that can damage and destroy their crops. Malawi’s economy has been heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and is just barely starting to show signs of recovery.

In Malawi, we have opened a new Center for Education and Mentoring in the capital city of Lilongwe. We currently have 5 mentors employed here and are already looking to add more. We are providing both business development and vocational courses in Malawi. Our first graduation for Malawi will be held at the end of April 2022.

English Teacher

Thoko C. Mzunga

raised in Malawi, and has worked in different areas, such as accounting, marketing, administration, and now education. She loves what she does.

She says that the best part about teaching and mentoring is the change and the progress that comes when people have learned something new. People are meant to discover new things every day, and mentoring helps people achieve that.

Thoko says, “After experiencing different areas of work, I think mentoring is a fulfilling profession. I am so grateful for the opportunity that Mentors International is giving me. Just as much as I love teaching, I also love learning, and I am currently working on obtaining a bachelor’s degree in applied health from Brigham Young University.”
