Malawi

Partners

We are grateful for our many partners who support our Volunteers in their project implementation.

We would especially like to thank the Government of Malawi, Peace Corps Malawi's most crucial partner. Without the Government of Malawi's invitation and collaboration, Peace Corps Malawi would not exist. Volunteers' project frameworks are designed in coordination with the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education, the Department of Forestry, and the Department of Parks and Wildlife and aim to meet the government's short and long-term goals. We also work closely with US government agencies including: President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

In addition to the Government of Malawi and the departments mentioned above, Peace Corps Malawi also works with the partners listed below:
