Nilikuwa maskini sana, sikuwa na chakula, sikuweza kupeleka watoto wangu shuleni, hata sikuwa na mavazi. Sasa nina furaha sana. Kwa fedha hizo nitatununua mahindi, nitakarabati nyumba yangu kwa kuwa iko kwenye hali mbayá. Nitanunua kuku wa kufuga ili wanisaidie siku za usoni.”Pamoja na kugawa fedha taslimu, mradi huu ulioanza kutekelezwa nchini Malawi mwaka 2006, umeanzisha vikundi vya kuweka na kukopa ambako wanachama wana uwezo wa kukopa fedha na kurejesha.Elube Ositini yeye ameanza kunufaika na mradi huu tangu mwaka 2014 na anasema,“ Kwa miaka yote hii nimeweza kujenga nyumba, kununua mifugo, kupeleka watoto shuleni. Na katika miaka minne ijayo nataka niongeze ng'ombe wafikie 10, niwapeleka watoto wangu hadi shule ya sekondari. Nina furaha sana kwa sababu nilicho nacho sasa sikutarajia kuwa navyo maishani.”Kwa Richard Kakoti ambaye naye yuko kwenye foleni kupata mgao, mradi huu ni mkombozi sana kwao kwani njaa iliwapiga na sasa wana ahueni kubwa akisema “Nimepokea Kwacha za kimalawi elfu 36. Hii ni mara yangu ya kwanza kupokea mgao huu wa fedha. Fedha hizi zitanisaidia mimi kama mkuu wa kaya kununua mahindi, maharagwe na mafuta ya kupikia kwa ajili ya familia yangu.”Kwacha Elfu 36 ni sawa na dola dola 35.  UNICEF inasema mradi huo pamoja na kusaidia kukabili njaa, unasaidia pia kujenga mnepo kwa kaya wakati huu ambao mtikisiko wa kiuchumi unaleta changamoto kwenye jamii.

In midlife, we may have more time or the ability to give more to causes we are passionate about and to sprinkle a little science in, research has found that at midlife and beyond when you are purposeful around giving back you experience more joy and happiness. Whether it's volunteering, philanthropy, or mentorship - we can all give back.  We welcome Lisa May to this episode to share her charitable journey -  from annual checks to charities around the holidays to her decision to be more hands-on resulting in wide-ranging and innovative programs to help women and children in Malawi.   Lisa shares the three pillars that drive the work that she and her husband Nigel do with the May Foundation and how amounts as small as $25, $100, or $400 dollars can have BIG impacts and life-changing results.   And Tish, Ellen, and Lisa talk about how to make giving a family purpose when children are young and carry it into adulthood.Be sure to follow the podcast on Instagram @themidsterspodcast Things we talked about in this episode: Renaissance Fairs, game nights with friends, Mexican Train,  Centerpoint, Hives Save Lives Africa, Every Child, Find Your Feet, Water Aid Obsessions:Tish: Renaissance Fairs - Tish encourages everyone to check out a Renaissance Faire!

It's been two weeks since Natasha's lumpectomy and because no evidence of cancer was found during surgery, she has been declared “cancer free” by her surgeon. The day of surgery was long and a little emotional from the anesthesia, but recovery has been less painful than expected. Food has flavor again and in her words, “it's about bloody time!” The road ahead includes more hormone blocker infusions every three weeks, radiation in two weeks, and going back to work next week.

Natasha was in Malawi on a Doctors Without Borders mission in 2021 when her husband of 25 years announced in a text message that he was leaving. She returned home, fell into bed for a few weeks, and eventually pulled herself together and went back to work. A few months later when she discovered an almond-sized lump in her armpit, she did everything she tells her patients not to do and dismissed it, or wrote it off as a “fat lump." Months went by before Natasha finally got a mammogram, but radiology saw nothing in either breast. It was the armpit lump that caught their attention. Next step was an ultrasound, where the lump was clearly visible. One painful biopsy later, Natasha found out she had cancer; in one life-changing moment, the nurse became the patient.

Since becoming pregnant, environmental historian and broadcaster Dr Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough has aspired to bring up her two children as sustainably as possible. In 2017, a Canadian study recommended that people could reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the number of children they have by one. It also pointed out how much bigger the carbon footprint of a child is in the West, compared to a child brought up in Malawi. Despite Eleanor's best efforts, she has found that raising 'eco babies' is not all that simple. From clothes and toys, to food, nappies and transport – parenting brings with it a whole pram-load of unexpected environmental impacts. And regardless of good intentions, parental pressures like a lack of support, the need for convenience and the price of eco-alternatives often means people fall back on more carbon-intensive options. So what needs to change to make it easier? Being a new parent is tough enough, without the feeling of failing the planet being added to the burden. In this programme, Eleanor sits down with her good friend Pamela Welsh, who also became a mother during the Covid pandemic, to discuss the areas where they are 'winning', and the occasions where they have been unable to make the greener-method work. They think about solutions and remind us that it is ok not to get it right all the time. Eleanor also meets individuals who are are attempting to come up with solutions to some of those difficulties - from mending clothes, recycling nappies, opening up cycling to parents with more than one child and renovating schools. Can the future of parenting be more eco? Presented by Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough Produced in Bristol by Natalie Donovan

Welcome to an episode with Gaurav Gupta, the Director at change management and strategy execution firm Kotter. Get Gaurav's book here: https://amzn.to/3ApxT5J The level of complexity and the pace at which things are changing in modern society requires leaders and organizations to be more reactive to change. Companies can no longer depend on a linear, methodical, deliberate approach to change. Instead, the key is to rely on a more agile, organic approach where employees are engaged and motivated to participate. As Gaurav mentioned in this episode, “The more organizations, individuals, teams, and leaders can start to frame change as an opportunity, the more people are going to run towards it because there are changes we embrace.” In this episode, we discussed the level of change that organizations face today and how they can effectively manage, adapt, and embrace the shifts required in the business. We discussed the kind of leader who thrives in situations where the organization goes through a fast-paced change. Gaurav Gupta worked with clients in industries as diverse as food and beverage, oil and energy, healthcare, chemicals, and finance. Gaurav draws on his extensive global (having worked in over 10 countries) and diverse functional experience in collaborating with business leaders to develop and implement effective transformation efforts.  Prior to joining Kotter, Gaurav led the operations for the European office of Stroud International, a management and operations consulting firm. Gaurav combines his passion for international development and education by serving as an executive board member for a non-profit, Medic to Medic, that sponsors medical students in Uganda and Malawi.  Gaurav holds a Bachelor of Arts in Physics from Middlebury College and a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from Cornell University.

Development is a gamble because success is not guaranteed when benefits materialize in the long-term and a host of factors may undermine elite positions. Some countries are able to settle on elite bargains that favour growth and development, and others are unable to reach such settlements.While elite bargains in China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Ghana ended up being development bargains, the opposite was the case in Nigeria, DRC, Malawi and South Sudan. Stefan Dercon is Professor at the Blavatnik School of Government and the Economics Department at theUniversity of Oxford, where he also directs the Centre for the Study of African Economies.His latest book – Gambling on Development: Why some countries win and others lose– draws on his academic research and his policy experience across three decades.

If there were fewer of us, would the amount of greenhouse gasses we emit reduce? It's a question that often creeps up in discussions about climate change. Studies show that the global population will decline eventually and populations in many rich nations are already declining. However, 11,000 scientists signed a paper warning of “untold suffering due to the climate crisis” unless society transforms, including the reversal of population growth. But an analysis by the United Nations found that affluence has a greater impact on the climate than population. When we talk about overpopulation, what are we really saying and where does the conversation go from here? This episode was first broadcast on 13th December 2021. Presenters Neal Razzell and Kate Lamble are joined by: Nyovani Madise, head of the Malawi office of the African Institute for Development Policy.

Medical MissionaryDuring the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901),British people traveled around the whole world.They charted the seas, mapped out distant countries and studied plants, animals and people.They also claimed many lands for England.This kind of international travel was made easier by improved transportation and communication.New inventions such as steamships, trains, telegraphs and telephones made long distances seem smaller.Of course, people had different reasons for going to distant lands.Some were businessmen who saw economic opportunities overseas.Big-game hunters wanted to be the first to shoot strange animals and bring back trophies to England.Scientists intended to study unknown animals and plants.Missionaries planned to be the first to introduce Christianity to faraway people.In 1836 a young Scotsman called David Livingstone began to study medicine in Glasgow.Livingstone intended to become a medical missionary.This means that he would be a doctor, as well as a preacher and teacher.Livingstone (1813-1873) came from a poor family.From an early age, he had worked 14 hours a day in a clothing factory for very little pay.But he was determined to learn.He took his books with him to the factory and read as he worked.Then, after work, he would go to his teacher to learn more.Livingstone's goal was to teach faraway people about Jesus.However, unlike some missionaries, he was also interested in science, geography and exploring.He had planned to go to China in 1839, but because of the Opium Wars no missionaries were being sent there.Instead, he asked to go to South Africa.Europeans had traveled around the coasts of Africa for hundreds of years.But very few white people had traveled inland.A missionary named Robert Moffatt who had begun a mission at Kuruman in the interior inspired Livingstone.Livingstone arrived in Kuruman in 1841.This was the farthest outpost of white settlement, and no one seemed to want to go further inland.Livingstone felt that the missionaries should go to the Africans, rather than waiting for the Africans to come to them.With a fellow missionary he set out.When they came to an African tribe, they would talk to the chief and ask permission to preach to his people.Livingstone would also set up a tent and treat the people who had diseases.After a while, he would move on to the next tribe.Once Livingstone learned the Bantu language he would talk to many Africans.But sometimes he needed interpreters.There were many diseases, including malaria and sleeping sickness.Livingstone suffered much of his life from river fever.He was also so weak that he rode on the back of an ox.Livingstone wanted to stop the slave trade.At this time, the slave trade was the most profitable business in Africa.Livingstone hoped that if other kinds of trade were developed, then slavery could be abolished.In order to open up trade, he wanted to find an easy route into the center of Africa.Livingstone kept going further into the interior.He was probably the first European to cross the Kalahari Desert before reaching Lake Ngami in present-day Botswana.Not long after, he traveled further inland.He explored the sources of the Zambesi and Kasai rivers and eventually reached the west coast of Africa at Luanda, Angola.Livingstone was being criticized for neglecting missionary work in order to explore.Livingstone replied that he was opening up the continent for missionaries.Meanwhile, he was becoming famous as a great explorer.The British government commissioned him to explore the Zambesi River.They hoped that ships could sail up the river into the interior.Unfortunately, the Zambesi had too many rapids.However, Livingstone did find a route up the Shire River to Lake Nyassa.He continued to struggle against the slave trade which was now being taken over by Arabs.Livingstone died in Africa in 1873.He was the first white man to explore Botswana Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and surrounding areas.He was not only a great explorer, but also a fine doctor and a good missionary.Nowadays, the countries that Livingstone visited are nearly all Christian--just as he hoped they would be.翻译戴维·利文斯通?医学传教士维多利亚女王统治期间(1837-1901年),英国人周游世界。他们绘制了海洋图,绘制了遥远的国家地图,研究了植物、动物和人。他们还为英格兰夺取了许多土地。由于交通和通讯的改善,这种国际旅行变得更加容易。新的发明,如轮船、火车、电报机和电话,使得远距离看起来更短。当然,人们去遥远的地方有不同的原因。有些是看到海外经济机会的商人。大型猎物猎人希望成为第一个射杀奇怪动物并将战利品带回英格兰的人。科学家们打算研究未知的动植物。传教士计划成为第一个向遥远的人们介绍基督教的人。1836年,一位名叫戴维·利文斯通的年轻苏格兰人开始在格拉斯哥学习医学。利文斯通打算成为一名医学传教士。这意味着他将成为一名医生,同时也是一名传教士和教师。利文斯通(1813-1873)来自一个贫穷的家庭。从很小的时候起,他就在一家服装厂每天工作14小时,工资微薄。但他决心学习。他把书带到工厂,边工作边看书。然后,下班后,他会去他的老师那里学习更多。利文斯通的目标是教导遥远的人们关于耶稣的事。然而,与一些传教士不同,他也对科学、地理和探索感兴趣。他计划在1839年去中国,但由于鸦片战争,没有传教士被派往那里。相反,他要求去南非。数百年来,欧洲人在非洲海岸旅行。但很少有白人去过内陆。一位名叫罗伯特·莫法特(Robert Moffatt)的传教士在内陆的库鲁曼(Kuruman)开始了一次传教,他启发了利文斯通(Livingstone)。利文斯通于1841年抵达库鲁曼。这是白人定居点最远的前哨,似乎没有人想再往内陆走。利文斯通认为传教士应该去非洲人那里,而不是等非洲人来找他们。他和一位传教士同行出发了。当他们来到一个非洲部落时,他们会与酋长交谈,并请求允许向他的人民布道。利文斯通还将搭起帐篷,治疗患病者。过了一段时间,他会搬到下一个部落。一旦利文斯通学会了班图语,他就会和许多非洲人交谈。但有时他需要口译员。那里有许多疾病,包括疟疾和昏睡病。利文斯通一生中大部分时间都在遭受河热病。他也很虚弱,骑在牛背上。利文斯通想阻止奴隶贸易。当时,奴隶贸易是非洲最赚钱的生意。利文斯通希望,如果发展其他类型的贸易,那么奴隶制就可以废除。为了开放贸易,他想找到一条通往非洲中心的捷径。利文斯通继续深入内部。他可能是第一个穿越卡拉哈里沙漠到达今天博茨瓦纳的恩加米湖的欧洲人。不久之后,他前往内陆。他探索了赞比西河和卡赛河的源头,最终到达了安哥拉罗安达的非洲西海岸。利文斯通因忽视传教工作而受到批评。利文斯通回答说,他正在向传教士开放非洲大陆。与此同时,他作为一名伟大的探险家而出名。英国政府委托他探索赞比西河。他们希望船只能顺河航行到内陆。不幸的是,赞比西河有太多的急流。然而,利文斯通确实找到了一条从夏尔河到尼亚萨湖的路线。他继续与奴隶贸易作斗争,而奴隶贸易现在正被阿拉伯人占领。利文斯通于1873年在非洲去世。他是第一个探索博茨瓦纳、津巴布韦、赞比亚、马拉维和周边地区的白人。他不仅是一位伟大的探险家,也是一位优秀的医生和传教士。如今,利文斯通访问的国家几乎都是基督徒——正如他所希望的那样。

In his book, The End of Poverty, Jeffrey Sachs made some careful estimates as to what it would cost to end extreme poverty in the world in about 20 years. Sachs calculated that the total cost per year would be about $175 billion. This represented less than one percent of the combined income of the richest countries in the world. In fact, this cost is 0.7% of the total income of the 30 countries who comprised OECD in 2005. Fast forward to 2022, an estimated 698 million people, or 9% of the global population, are living in extreme poverty, with the overwhelming majority living on less than $1.90 a day. By 2030, 167 million children will live in extreme poverty if the world doesn't act. This is where my guest today comes in. Esnatt Gondwe-Matekesa is a Development Practitioner at GiveDirectly.

Natasha was in Malawi on a Doctors Without Borders mission in 2021 when her husband of 25 years announced in a text message that he was leaving. She returned home, fell into bed for a few weeks, and eventually pulled herself together and went back to work. A few months later when she discovered an almond-sized lump in her armpit, she did everything she tells her patients not to do and dismissed it, or wrote it off as a “fat lump." Months went by before Natasha finally got a mammogram, but radiology saw nothing in either breast. It was the armpit lump that caught their attention. Next step was an ultrasound, where the lump was clearly visible. One painful biopsy later, Natasha found out she had cancer; in one life-changing moment, the nurse became the patient.

"When you travel, you find out what it is you really want. You find out what you're capable of, what your ambitions are." –Paul Theroux In this episode of Deviate, Rolf and Paul talk about how brotherly conflict is a time-honored trope in literature, and how travel can be a way to find your interests and ambitions in life (3:00); the ethical paradoxes and hypocrisies of global charities and industries in a resource-rich place like Africa (9:30); how writing fiction differs from writing nonfiction (19:00); and where Theroux is headed next (22:00). Paul Theroux (@PaulTheroux_) is a pioneer of travel writing and author of many highly acclaimed books, including The Great Railway Bazaar,  The Tao of Travel, and  On the Plain of Snakes. His newest novel is The Bad Angel Brothers.

Earlier this month, a mass grave containing 25 bodies was discovered in Malawi. Investigators there are still working to find out exactly what happened to these people. But the government believes they were Ethiopian and that it is possible that they were being trafficked. The possibility has put a spotlight on migration routes from north to southern Africa and the conditions people face along the way. People have been making similar journeys for many years though. So why are people migrating? And what is it like for those on the move? #AfricaDaily

Thanks to the incredible cold cap technology, Desert Essence shampoo, and seldomly using a brush, after six rounds of chemo Natasha still has her hair. Meanwhile, everything else is falling apart. Plans to celebrate at a fancy restaurant are wrecked when her date gets COVID and none of her friends can go. An insurance snafu just 2 days before her last chemo causes her to run out of Zofran and getting a refill requires some creativity. Natasha has another MRI to see if the chemo worked, and realizes only after reading the results alone that if it had been bad news she would have been in a dark place without support. As she reflects on chemo, she shares what could have been done differently.

Natasha was in Malawi on a Doctors Without Borders mission in 2021 when her husband of 25 years announced in a text message that he was leaving. She returned home, fell into bed for a few weeks, and eventually pulled herself together and went back to work. A few months later when she discovered an almond-sized lump in her armpit, she did everything she tells her patients not to do and dismissed it, or wrote it off as a “fat lump." Months went by before Natasha finally got a mammogram, but radiology saw nothing in either breast. It was the armpit lump that caught their attention. Next step was an ultrasound, where the lump was clearly visible. One painful biopsy later, Natasha found out she had cancer; in one life-changing moment, the nurse became the patient.

While there are millions of hostile rivalries around the world, only a fraction of these erupt into violence. It is easy to overlook the underlying strategic forces of war and to see war mainly as a series of errors and accidents. It is also easy to forget that war shouldn't happen—and most of the time it doesn't. Chris Blattman is a Professor at the University of Chicago in the Harris School of Public Policy. He is an economist and political scientist who studies violence, crime, and underdevelopment. His most recent book is Why We Fight: The Roots of War and the Paths to Peace, which shows that violence is actually not the norm; and that there are only five reasons why conflict wins over compromise.
