Development in Malawi

World citizenship

In 2018, Friends for Africa delivered a container full of computers to a Secondary School in southern Malawi, Mulanje. These computers will be used for English lessons and to develop the young people's digital skills and connect them to the world.

The young people from the Netherlands spent 10 days in Malawi and gave lessons at the school. A sports day was also organised.
Young people in the Netherlands often live in abundance. There are social facilities that young people can fall back on, and going hungry and having no roof over their heads is almost unthinkable in the Netherlands. In Malawi, it is still reality for many people. The short-term goal of the trip is development and awareness among the young people. The long term goal is world citizenship and ultimately development in Malawi through the involvement of the young generation. A world citizen is someone who realises that what he or she does has an effect on the rest of the world (Wereldburger, (n.d)). And therefore thinks about the choices he or she makes. The trip challenges young people to think about their background, upbringing and position in society. A journey like this can contribute to making choices for now and later.
