Welcome to Malawi! The country’s name means ‘fire flames’, in reference to the reflection of the sun on Lake Malawi, the third largest lake in Africa. Malawi is also, sadly, one of the poorest countries in the world, with just over half its population – mostly people in rural areas – living in poverty.
In this edition:
- Meet Banda, who turned his life around through farming and reading the Bible.
- Hear a group of women farmers sing for their supper.
- Wisdom from an old Malawian saying… and how it is being put into action.
Just to let you know, some of the stories in this World of Difference update were gathered before the coronavirus crisis.
