More women in Tech

One of the goals of the World Bank funded Digital Malawi project is to get more women in the innovation and technology sectors. As a way to achieve this, the Digital Malawi put a requirement that 60% of all trainees must be female. This is a requirement that continues to be met by constant questioning and scrutiny, as is always the relevance of affirmative action.

What’s next for my work in Malawi?

As I pursue personal development for a while, I will be stepping away from Ntha Foundation operational and administrative roles. My team will be taking over, and I share more here how we intend to continue serving Malawi.

Wherever I go

5 years ago, in early January of 2017, I moved to Lilongwe. I had just completed my undergraduate studies, and I told my parents I was moving to a city 220kms away. I am living my last days in a city I have for half a decade loved to call home. I am sitting at one of my favorite restaurants, writing this, for mostly me, and maybe you too.
