I am January Mvula from Malawi, Professionally I am a development worker and the founder of Sustainable Rural Community Development Organization in Malawi. As a development worker I like to empower the community which is living in hopeless area, and they think that they have nothing to do with development. The most important thing I do with these community is to show them that I am part of them and I am ready to learn from them especially on how they do things. This acts like my entry point to the community, when the community learn that I am part of them they become so flexible to teach me how they do their things, after learning all these things I always polish what ever the community already know to integrate it with the development approaches which can assist them to take the ideas so easily. By doing this I feel that the communities are empowered easily cause they know that what we are doing is the same things they have been doing.
