Staff Development and Capacity Building
FVM has been proactive in developing its staff through education and workshops. Newton Sindo, Country Manager, has been attending short term courses in project management and long term college education. Within a space of five years, he has successfully completed a certificate in Nutrition & Child Care, Certificate in Project Management, Diploma in Business Management, Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and most recently a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.
Maria Phiri has been one of the beneficiaries of this programme. She studied Business and Home Management. She was picked from the vulnerable groups of people due to her albinism so that she would be an example of hope to others. In Malawi people with albinism are facing challenges of various types like discrimination and a belief that their bodies and body parts bring good fortune and financial success to people, so many are abducted and killed.
