The objective of DAPP in Malawi is to promote social and economic development. Through a variety of development models, DAPP complements the government’s effort in implementing the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy to achieve the nation’s Vision 2020. The people engaged in the development initiatives of DAPP are trained and equipped with tools and knowledge enabling them to transform their dreams and wishes for a better life into practical actions.

Presently, the DAPP projects are focused on four of the pressing development issues in  Malawi:

  • Increasing access to inclusive quality education
