Supporting Job Training and Business Opportunities Is Essential to Helping the Young People of Malawi Become Self-Sustaining

Help Us Bring Good Jobs to Malawi

The need for jobs in the professional trades is essential for Malawi to build its infrastructure and provide basic services for its citizens. Building a technical trade school and apprenticeship program that creates good jobs is among our primary goals. There is tremendous demand for people trained in plumbing, drainage, well-water construction, and electrical careers. These jobs can also provide excellent business opportunities and sustainable wages for young people. 

Good Soil Partners believes that the path to a self-sustaining Malawi is through helping entrepreneurs create, build, plan, and launch businesses. Our primary focus will be launching our own technical trade school and small trade businesses for our apprenticeships to learn and become professionals. Our goal is to offer this curriculum in the high school years so that students will have basic skills to earn income on their own before graduation. Basic tools and some capital funding money will be loaned to launch each student. We see this as a great development opportunity to teach some very important skills and to immediately impact the one of biggest problems in Malawi — the lack of good paying jobs.

With your help, we can bring jobs to the young people of Malawi. For generations, the youth of Malawi have lacked the education and training needed to provide for more than the basic human needs for their families. Our goal is to empower the next generation to dream bigger and become the business leaders who will change history and the future of Malawi. You generous donations can help us achieve that goal. Please consider an investment in our trade business venture.
