The Dòchas Education Trust

advancing and transforming through education, training and learning

Our hearts have been drawn to the people of the Nsanje District of Southern Malawi. 

It lies far from the seat of Government in Lilongwe in the most southerly part of the country on the border with Mozambique and in the confluence of the Zambezi and Shire rivers.  Whilst it is a fertile region it is also prone to a cycle of drought and flooding.Covering a large area, its widely scattered community mainly survives through subsistence farming.  Droughts and floods can by turn give poor harvests and there is a lack of safe, clean drinking water and adequate sanitation.
