Developing tomorrow’s leaders today

As Cornerstone, our quest is to empower and transform kids and youths for Christ. And to ably fulfill this, we encourage young people in our Empowerment programs and our staff to attain higher qualifications so that they can ably contribute to the development of their communities and Malawi.

Amongst the greatest fits of the last quarter of the year 2018 was the graduation of our Administrative Assistant Joyce Pande, one of our Camp leaders, Promise Mjima and  Glory Munthali who went to the US.

A little about Promise

Promise was part of the second cohort of Camp leaders recruited in 2013.  For the past three years, he has been studying for a Diploma in Gender and Development at Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources. As a ministry, we are happy to see youths from our Youth Empowerment Program becoming reliable citizens in society.

Promise is also a representative of Salima Youths in the Malawi Youth Parliament. In this role, he takes up the needs of fellow youths to the national assembly. As a ministry, we look forward to producing many young people like Promise who can lead and influence change in their communities.

And to everyone who has ever visited Cornerstone premises, Joyce is the young lady always wearing a smile. With her graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration, we are assured that she will help Cornerstone grow in its drive to sustainability as she will help in managing the business at the Cornerstone Christian High School and other commercial ventures.

Another highlight for 2018 was our teacher Glory Munthali was selected to attend the two-year UrbanPromise International School of Entrepreneurial Leadership in the U.S. She will receive in-depth instruction in non-profit organizational leadership.  While at Cornerstone, Glory demonstrated ability as a leader and visionary, we are sure that her studies will help her serve fellow youths well when she returns to Malawi.
