Go beyond the headlines and experience the people, wildlife, and wonders of the “Warm Heart of Africa”.
This landlocked nation is home to some 15 million people and a wide array of wildlife. Our programs in Malawi have been designed to educate students on vital issues affecting the world today and is based on Future Earth’s model of sustainable development and environmental conservation. It provides an all-encompassing overview of development that gives students a ‘passport for life,’ including workshops on Wildlife, Environmental Conservation, Healthcare, Education and Fair Trade. The studies take place in an environment that is hands-on and participatory, encouraging students to actively learn and put their classroom lessons into a practical context. The experiences and knowledge gained will provide students with a passport to a wide variety of future careers alongside helping to develop the necessary skills to succeed, such as communication, adaptability and leadership. By linking groups together with on-the-ground ‘agents of change’ we promote transformational learning that sets students up to become successful and responsible citizens.
