'Hope for Youth' opens doors for Chiletso
10 May 2021
Our Hope for Youth project has opened many doors for vulnerable young people in Malawi. Through our local partner CADECOM Malawi and with support from the EU, 2,205 young women and men have completed training in a range of technical skills, giving them life-changing access to apprenticeships and employment.
One young person who found success through the project is Chiletso. Opportunities for young women to attend vocational colleges are limited in the Balaka district where Chiletso lives so she thought she might never realise her dream of attending college.

With support from SCIAF’s Hope for Youth project, she was able to take part in a 6-month course in welding and fabrication at Andiamo Technical College. Hope for Youth has opened many doors for vulnerable young people in Malawi. For Chiletso, the future is bright.
