Our Malawi Team
We are so happy to have a wonderful, dedicated team on the ground in Malawi making things happen for Kusewera! We have established an NGO in Malawi, that is an extension of Kusewera in the U.S. that was necessary to assure things run smoothly in country.

Knocks Kaipa : Kusewera Village Property Manager, Key Advisor and Vehicle Manager – We’ve known Knocks since 2008 and he has been an important member of our family ever since. His dedication and loyalty to us is so valuable to the overall workings of Kusewera in Malawi. He will interact with all guests, contractors, Kusewera staff and volunteers in all aspects of dealings with the village and will handle and coordinate other necessary items as needed.
Chippie Mulima : Director of Operations and Program Director – Chippie is a certified teacher and an athlete. He was part of a basketball team that Kusewera set up to visit Mtendere Village Orphanage to play with the kids and give speeches of inspiration for several Christmases in a row. In April 2015, we were delighted to be able to have Chippie work with Kusewera directly and help with implementing our programs in Malawi. We were able to introduce him to our friends at the orphanage, which led to a temporary teaching job for a few months! He is now officially the Director of Operations and Program Director for Kusewera and is responsible for the planning and implementing of the Kusewera programs in Malawi.
Pascaline Moyo : Assistant Program Coordinator – We have known Pascaline for many years, and have enjoyed watching her grow in her leadership skills and in athletics. She has a vast knowledge of sports and has a passion to empower children, specifically young girls. She most recently worked in Lilongwe for a Shipping and Receiving company, earning a greater knowledge of business, and a certificate of completion. As the Assistant Program Coordinator, Pascaline will assist the Director in the implementing of the Kusewera programs.
