Our Mission

TEAM Malawi is a multidisciplinary, all-inclusive collaboration, based upon a community wellness model of health, designed to meet the challenges of a developing nation through an approach of community based participatory research/design/pedagogy.

Our History

Our History

For years now, people in the Virginia Tech community have been working on community-level development projects in Malawi, many times having no idea their neighbors were working in the same country on other initiatives. In 2015, TEAM Malawi was formally created to integrate the activities of this disparate group of researchers, students, and community members into a cohesive, collaborative program.

    “As a female in engineering, I learned that I have to be authentic about what I’m passionate about,” Taylor said. “It’s important to know yourself, know what you’re excited about, and really chase after that. If we’re not authentic, we’re doing a disservice not only to ourselves, but also the world in which we live.”
