The Mlambe Project


Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world. We at The Mlambe Project believe that the best means of aiding the Malawian people in their struggle against poverty is through the provision of sustainable livelihoods and a high quality education. We aim to achieve this through the use of low cost and high impact methods.

We make a difference

Our Strategies in Detail

We’ve worked hard to transparently define our strategies on everything from operational practices to how we work with other NGOs.

Each of these outlines has a goal, key considerations, catalysts, deliverables, and future considerations. In this way, we clarify what we need to do to turn our vision into reality.

He wanted to be part of people developing education standards for the rural Malawians. John is now a trustee for The Mlambe Project. John is also a student of University of the People, studying BBA under the sponsorship of The Mlambe Project. He is hoping to complete his studies by the end of 2023.
