Rites of Passage works with young Malawians in townships in Lilongwe, where youth unemployment is extremely high and young people are at risk of becoming involved in crime. The programme builds towards each participant becoming an inspiring leader in their community, as advocates, ambassadors or entrepreneurs.
We deliver innovative personal development programme, informal education to local school children, take part in youth advocacy activities and contribute to the local economy through enterprise development.

Since 2012, 1000 participants have completed the Rites of Passage programme and engaged with more than 8000 young people.Read More
