New NGO Status Widens MWAI Reach in Malawi
Miske Witt & Associates Inc. (MWAI) has been certified by the nation of Malawi as a nongovernmental
organization (NGO), allowing fuller application of the firm's international education development skills
and experience across the country.
The NGO designation from the Non Governmental Organisation Board of Malawi broadens MWAI's
ongoing participation in developing good schools. It also qualifies the firm as a member of the
Council for Non Governmental Organisations in Malawi.
NGO registration permits MWAI to employ staff in Malawi and to design and implement projects of its
own as a full contractor. Until now, MWAI's work has been primarily as a subcontractor, helping other
organizations implement projects.
MWAI's current projects include supporting the USAID-funded Malawi Early Grade Reading
Improvement Activity, known as MERIT, through a gender integration and safe learning spaces
approach; and Engaging Communities and Schools in Support of Adolescent Girls in Malawi
(ECSSAGEM). ECSSAGEM is funded by the Dubai Cares and Echidna Giving foundations
under the "Partnership to Strengthen Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education" (PSIPSE)
