Engage in Malawi
Malawi, a landlocked country situated in southeastern Africa, is known for its picturesque highlands and expansive lakes. It occupies a slender strip of land along the East African Rift Valley, with Lake Nyasa, also known as Lake Malawi, covering over one-fifth of its total area. With an estimated population of around 20.2 million people in 2023, Malawi remains primarily agrarian, with the majority of its inhabitants engaged in cash-crop and subsistence farming. The country’s agricultural exports comprise both smallholder produce and the products of large tea and tobacco estates. Despite receiving significant foreign capital in the form of development aid and having ample natural resources, Malawi has struggled with issues such as chronic malnutrition, high infant mortality rates, and widespread poverty, particularly among rural communities. While the country has a few major urban centers like the capital, Lilongwe, and Blantyre, the seat of the judiciary, most Malawians reside in rural areas. Malawi’s geography stretches approximately 520 miles from north to south, with varying widths ranging from 5 to 100 miles. It shares borders with Tanzania to the north, Mozambique to the east and south, and Zambia to the west, making it a strategically located country in the region.
