Growing Malawi’s Skilled Workforce

Project Title: Strengthening Higher Education Access in Malawi Activity (SHEAMA)

Each year, more than 80,000 secondary school students in Malawi face economic and social impediments that prevent them from accessing higher education to obtain the skills needed for jobs and business ownership. In response, government, universities and international donors are forming partnerships to create innovative approaches that extend higher education opportunities to youth in more impoverished rural communities. The Strengthening Higher Education Access in Malawi Activity (SHEAMA) is a four-year, USAID-funded project to increase Malawi’s skilled and employable workforce, with a particular focus on rural adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) and vulnerable young men.
