With few opportunities for quality employment for Malawian youth, one of the best options for a stable future is to go to a technical, entrepreneurial, and vocational education training (TEVET) college. There, students can learn a trade or other practical skill. However, women’s enrollment at these institutions sits at 27 percent, with the low numbers frequently attributed to rampant GBV at the colleges.
The latest cohort of Dreamers from the Students with Dreams project culminated in a fun and exciting evening of art and music at our offices last month. We were delighted to not only showcase the work that the Dreamers had done in their exploration of creative freedom of expression, but also share some music, art, and poetry from Malawi.
