Project activities in Malawi in the near future

Last week we received visitors from Malawi / Africa: The bishop of Karonga, Rev. Martin Mtumbuka, his Secretary, Father Joseph Moloka Sikwese, and the Secretary of Caritas Mwawi-Shaba. Together with General Praeses Msgr. Ottmar Dillenburg and Volker Greulich, African desk, they agreed on concrete steps to found Kolping Families in Malawi. In future, Kolping International will therefore be able to support project activities in Malawi. The bishop expressed considerable interest in our activities in rural development.

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in Africa; small farmers’ agriculture is one of the main sources of income for the population.
