What is the Trip for?
This 13 day trip is an opportunity to travel to Nkhata Bay in Malawi and spend time working with Butterfly Space (a community project). Myself and the team will be working with one of the nearby primary schools, providing a high-quality, educational activity week to some of the poorest children from the outskirts of Nkhata Bay town. The activity week will be a wonderful opportunity for them to have fun, learn and experience new opportunities. During the trip myself and the team will also take a visit to Mpamba disabled group.
Malawi is the 8th poorest country in the world. In rural areas such as Nkhata Bay, communities struggle to support its children in their education and in provision of basic needs. classes are often overcrowded and many children don't manage to complete secondary school due to the burden of school fees, exam fees and cost of uniform. Many are also expected to work in the fields and earn a wage in whatever they can.
Butterfly Space is a non-profit community project serving the people of Nkhata Bay. It is run by two British women and a team of Malawians. Projects include a nursery school, sustainable gardening, 'beds for the elderly', a youth group, links to local primary schools, an internet and media centre, a self-help group for those with HIV, and vocational training. They also run eco-lodges which provide income that is put back into the projects. This is such an amazing project to be a part of.
5th - 17th July 2019 (inclusive)
Who is in Charge?
The trip will be led by CRED Team Trips (Adventure Lifesigns) staff, comprising a Trip Leader and Assistant Leader. CRED Team Trips is a member of the Expedition Providers Association, holder of the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge for Overseas Trips.
