WHY GO ON THIS TRIP?

The mission trip will focus on teaching a 5-day business planning class to COTN students who were not able to go to college or are unable to find a job. After the classes, you will go into a near by village and get to know some families. You will be able to share Jesus with them, pray with and for them, and get to know them.

You will implement COTN’s lessons and provide guidance as they create and/or sustain their small businesses with a small micro-finance loan. COTN calls this part of their program, “beyond the village.”

A few small business that have been successful are tea rooms, solar charging stations, farming, clothing, peanut butter, and even a movie theater in a village!

If you have any experience in business, teaching, finance, or marketing (although not limited to these) please pray about going to Malawi!
