Thanks for inquiring. My name is David Malawian with tumbuka roots, born in a family of 5 children 3girls and 2 boys. My father is a retired primary school teacher and my mom is jobless.
I'm a a social worker and my passion in life is to contribute to a better environment, changing places and changing lives.
Special interests are gender issues/female empowerment, inequality issues and to make sure everyone can enjoy the basic human rights, such as access to education and basic health care.
I love treavelling, I am used to meeting people from different cultures so I would say I'm interculturally competent.
I am the chief Executive Officer and founder of a newly formed organization that is just taking its shape.
2. Recently we are very focused on improving the conditions by lifting up adolescents and children's livelihood from the street/slums by preparing them with soft and technics skills such carpentry (Woodwork), welding, computer, business skills as well as self-awareness at the end we eager to connect them with different job opportunities, resume school, connect with shelters and families. Moreover, the organization provides lessons for those who don’t know how to read and write. We need your experience in employability and turn ideas into a valuable job or creating jobs from surrounding challenges
3. Sexual and reproductive health Rights Project
In order to contribute to the girl’s empowerment, the organization chose to focus on education. Many girls are not informed on how to handle their monthly period properly and miss school because they feel uncomfortable. Or they drop out after getting pregnant. This leaves them with a worse education than the male students are able to receive, limiting their future prospects. To avoid that, the organization takes responsibility by implementing sex education courses in secondary schools to raise awareness and provide accurate information to the students
Among other future projects we want to: (a) Build a youth learning center as well as a proper nursery place for children and (b) build volunteer houses

3. Help with social media and marketing (taking pictures and videos editing with your own camera)
- Help us spread the word to friends, family, colleagues or other society members via facebook, instagram and emails (any social network), so that we can reach as many people as possible and get more likes, shares, comments and reviews or donation in order to raise awareness of education and reach out our goals.
4. Helping in building classrooms, computer lab and Library.
- We need volunteers who aren’t afraid of getting dirty hands by helping us in building and construction in general. As a plus you can help with building interior equipment like bookshelves or useful things.
- Other facilities and supplies for the school are needed, These includes furnitures, textbooks, laptops or computers, camera or binoculars, office chairs, office tables, printers e.t.c.
5. Workshops in health class, sexual education and menstrual hygiene.
- Help out by conducting workshop to school drop out girls, young women and youth who faces a great challenges of lacking awareness on health issues and sanitary resources which leads to school drop outs, poor performance, lack of job opportunity, early marriage, unwanted pregnant and poverty in general.
We would truly appreciate the help of a volunteer who could come with new financing ideas, how to make new partnerships, or create a way for us to make money independently. Also if someone could come and help to spread awareness of our project around the world. So, if you have the willingness and/or experience with grant writing, fundraising, report writing, or if you know organizations, people, or businesses that could support us, you could make a huge difference!

▪︎As a small NGO, we are always in need of an extra pair of hands in the office. In addition to working in the field, a large part of running an NGO is spent at the office. If volunteers are skilled and interested in volunteering at the office, they can help with writing and editing proposals, research, carrying out fundraising activities, assisting with online marketing, updating social media and website design in addition to their field volunteering tasks. Skilled photographers or film makers can also contribute by making promotional materials for our local NGO
However a volunteer will be free to propose other activities not specfied as above. We are free to develop an action plan with the volunteers.
Volunteers are also free to work extra or less hours.
