The Dochas Education Trust seeks to bring improvement to the Nsanje District of Malawi through education and training. The first project offers in-service training to teachers. An initial cohort of 24 teachers has been identified and they attended workshops and needs assessments in Blantyre in August 2009. Application for the training to be validated by the Malawian Government is in process. The course will be delivered in a train the trainers model and several modules will be delivered annually over six years. The Trust will work to improve infrastructure and resource needs as funds allow, and also seek to train church and community leaders.
