Relocation of ASAP Malawi
ASAP's office in Malawi is moving from Chikwawa to Blantyre. After only 9 months of actively working in rural Chikwawa, the expansion and demand for ASAP's Chimvano pa Chuma (CCP) "Unity for Economic Growth" project has been so positive that there is need to move to a more central location. Blantyre is the second largest city in Malawi, second to the capital, Lilongwe. The move will actually decrease ASAP's operating costs in Malawi. Because of limited road access in this area, field staff were often required to travel a long way around and through Blantyre to access communities which are actually adjacent "as the crow flies". This move makes expansion in the area much more workable.
