Dzaleka- Training For A Future in Malawi's Largest Refugee Camp

Our team have started delivering a six-week enterprise-training programme to 46 young people living in Dzaleka. This programme has been met with impressive energy and commitment from the young people. They are learning how to plan a business, identify opportunities within their situation, manage risk and get started. Self-employment is their own viable option for an independent economic future as Malawi law does not currently let refugees move out or find employment outside the camp. The young participants have already demonstrated they are going to make the most of this opportunity. Our facilitators are optimistic that these young people will successfully start businesses, and this energy and entrepreneurship will have a wider positive impact on the young refugee community living in Dzaleka.
