Tingathe Training Program
This is our flagship program, which trains our students in marketable vocational skills so as to empower them with marketable vocational skills, life skills, seed funding and mentorship, thereby enabling them to thrive in their communities.
Tingathe Training Program has been designed to prepare out of school youth in Mtandile, Lilongwe, Malawi for a productive community life. The program enrolls youth between the ages of 18 and 30 who have limited access to alternative livelihood opportunities. The 12-month training course focuses on:
• Leadership skills development
• Vocational skills and entrepreneurship development
• Financial literacy
• Business management
• Computer literacy
• Post-program support that includes access to seed grants, mentorship, and market and employment linkages
Our Shared Goal
Tingathe is proud to be in partnership with the British Council, Play Football, the Zikomo Foudation, and Mhub as part of the Our Shared Goal program, which aims to teach children in peri-urban communities about gender-based violence through the medium of sport.
Childrens’ Life Skills Program
Children’s Life skills programme: Our 11-week children’s life skills programme engages children between the ages of 11 and 15. It teaches them such skills as good communication, sexual and reproductive health, and children’s rights and responsibilities. We will be extending our life skills programme to Muzu Primary school, Kamkodola and Mtsiliza primary school in 2019.
Adzimayi Tingathe Geni
Business management for women: We provide business management training and financial literacy for women from peri-urban zones engaged in small business. Through this programme we also provide tools to help these women access services such as airtel money, which can assist them in managing and growing their savings groups.
