The Challenges







#BuyMalawian2018 Winner


Congratulations to Lilidh Aveyard (and her daughter, Rosie!) for winning the holiday to Malawi including flights courtesy of Ethiopian Airlines!

Lilidh took part in the COOK challenge for the #BuyMalawian2018 competition.

She bought 20kg of Kilombero Rice for people to take home with them (to encourage them to buy it again and as a thank you for coming!), and made Malawian gin cocktails and served Mzuzu coffee! 

She said: "I held an afternoon tea party to introduce my baby to friends. People attending already knew that Malawi is an amazing place with a great sense of community as they've followed my life there as a volunteer and have met Sandra and Gift (who stayed with me and my family for 6 months each) and have attended many fundraisers for STEKA to raise money for the vocational skills centres.

"I want them to be able to see Malawi as more than just a country that needs aid and realise that there are more ways to support Malawi through trade too - through buying products like Malawi gin, Kilombero rice and Mzuzu coffee (people also gave donations to raise money for a nursery at the Vocational skills centre so Malawian mum's can continue their education - like I will be able to instead of bringing gifts for her)."

"If I was to win, I would be able to show them how easy it is to go there on holiday (and support through tourism) and I would use the opportunity to share my experience on social media and show how safe and fun a holiday in Malawi is!"
