Malawi Update

We believe that education is the way out of economic poverty and by equipping and empowering the next generation, they are able to change their future and the future of their family.  Resurrection, through various donors, has been funding at-risk youth in Malawi to attend vocational schools since 2019.  The various programs the young adults have chosen to date are:  bricklaying, plumbing, tailoring, hair dressing, driving, motorcycle repair, electrical and welding.  Not only do these students learn vocational training, but the program implementors have added mentoring to help these students start their own business or guide them in finding employment.  Funny Nkhoma, the Program Supervisor, recently put together the first newsletter for the Vocational Skills & Apprenticeship Program.
