Can I volunteer with Determined to Develop in Malawi?

Determined to Develop has partnered with a lodge called Mazi Zuwa (meaning water and Sun), located in a rural area of the northern lakeshore of Malawi, which serves as a staging ground for all of our volunteer opportunities. Determined to Develop’s comprehensive program allows our volunteers to give back in a more “on the ground” approach as you balance service and vacation. Determined to Develop volunteers work directly with the people of Malawi to improve their community. Volunteers are encouraged to connect with the local culture and open themselves up to an experience that few ever get.

Determined to Develop enables volunteers to be plugged into specific projects where you have skills or where a great need is present. If you’re traveling with a group, projects will be determined by both your group’s interest and the availability of projects at the time of your travel. If you’re an individual or family, you may request a specific project based on your interest. Determined to Develop volunteers visit expecting to help others but often have their hearts touched in a way which literally transforms their lives.

Please email for more information about our comprehensive volunteer program in Malawi, Africa.

What are Determined to Develop's plans for for future growth?

Determined to Develop has positioned itself as a strategic innovator in ideas, with education as its main focus. In the future, D2D will continue to develop replicable, education-focused ideas for economic and social empowerment. In the past few years, we have made strides in women’s and girl’s empowerment programming, launched a new boys high school and plan to open both a girl’s school and technical college. We will also link other NGO’s and governments with our best practices so that they can scale with many partners.
