UMOYO OWALA

Meet Ramadhan Kamdulira, a 2016 graduate of the Students with Dreams Programme from Malawi College of Health Sciences. Together with his co-leaders Steve kaunda, Thandiwe Kandoje and Abdul Rasheed Nangoma they implemented the project “Umoyo Owala”. As health work students, the team were concerned by the barriers people in rural areas face to accessing HIV services. They created Umoyo Owala to reduce the number of people that contract HIV/AIDs in Zomba district by providing sensitization and Free HIV testing and counseling services.  Through the project, they were able to reach out to people in four villages in Chief Mlobe, Zomba district.

After graduating from SWD, they are still continuing with their project, with a focus of reducing the rate of HIV transmission among people in prisons. They are also in the process of registering a non- profit Organisation which will tackle issues of HIV/AIDs in Malawi.

“Students with dreams made me realise the potential that I have in me. I feel like I can do so much more, and that is because of the knowledge and experience I gained implementing my project”. says Ramadhan
