Sophomore Anna Rago will travel to Malawi this summer to work with Pamoza International on initiatives in education for girls. Anna will spend 17 days in Malawi working with Temwa K. Wright, Pamoza’s executive director (above left), and Janet Dailey, a former teacher and member of Pamoza (above right).
Pamoza International’s programs focus on Christian outreach, entrepreneurship, education, nutrition through school breakfasts, and agriculture and food security. According to the group’s website, the word “pamoza” means “together” in Tumbuka, a language spoken in north Malawi, Africa. Pamoza International believes in working together with the people they serve, following their lead on projects and ideas.
