Concern Universal (CU) in Malawi in the water and sanitation sector. Concern Universal's website is on the link list to your right, and for the really eager their annual report on their Malawi activities is at here.
Part of the challenge of my placement will be figuring out how I can add value to Concern's organization, but I do know I'll likely be focusing on the monitoring and evaluation of their projects. Brett Stevenson worked with CU last year, and there's a great description of her work here. I love how part of her work was encouraging CU to measure development as more than just the number of latrines built or wells installed, but as the positive impact it can have on people's lives. I'm very excited about continuing with CU, and about being in Malawi! It's a small country of about 12.6 million people, (BBC country profiles) and all the volunteers to Malawi I've talked to say it's a beautiful country. It certainly looks like it, judging by the pictures from Kim's blog:I'm looking forward to telling you more soon!
