Matilsa Mchazime UWCM 2017
While I was at UWC Maastricht, I created the project “I Am Malawi”. The main concept was to empower the youth by creating a platform where they can come and discuss issues that hinder them from performing to their full potential, and then together, try to deal with these issues. Apart from discussions and workshops, the project provided a mentorship program for youths who wanted to cultivate skills in areas such as sports, music and others. Motivational talks were given to encourage them. Information on how to find scholarship was offered as well, to help introduce them to the diverse opportunities available to do what they actually want to, especially since the education system in Malawi is not that diversified. This was done with the hope that when they acquire their education, they can come back and assist others. This project was sponsored by GoMakeADifference.
