Come to Malawi with us in March and have an experience of a lifetime! Make friends, join the community, make a difference and learn about yourself!
All volunteers stay at our Go! Malawi campus in Mpamila Village for the majority of the trip. They stay in a house or a chalet on a plateau that overlooks Lake Malawi and is bordering the Ntchisi Rainforest.
Volunteers spend time working collaboratively with local teachers and assist students at the Mpamila Primary School and in our After-School Education Program.
One of Go! Malawi's overarching goals is to promote gender equality and celebrate feminism! Most Malawian girls have two lone expectations in life: to become, early on, a wife and mother. Through your support and our programs, girls are seeing there are many facets that contribute to their whole self, as well as learning there are multiple doors to their future. Your presence can lift girls' confidence and you can model respect for women and foster the importance of education.
Go! Malawi is working on sustainable solutions with the local community to protect the Ntchisi Rainforest, and help prevent deforestation. Volunteers have ample opportunity to go on guided hikes into the forest and work on projects, such as building a firebreak and planting trees. They also may speak about the importance of conservation in local schools and spread awareness about the local flora and fauna.
