Civitas Malawi Eye-Opening Presentation at Mzuzu University

Misheck Munthali, Civitas Malawi (CM) Co-Founder and Country Director, and Dr. J. Fay Kelle from University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service gave a presentation at the Mzuzu University American Corner on August 2, 2007.

The topic focussed on: The Goals (Agency, Civility and Equality or ACE) and the Essential Competencies (Emotional/Social, Political and Intellectual Competencies or EPIC) of Democratic Citizenship for a Democratic and Prosperous Life in Malawi. Several participants commented after the presentation that it was very “eye opening.”

The talk focused on the work of Civitas Malawi, specifically Project Citizen Malawi, which is a democratic citizenship secondary curricular program designed by Center for Civic Education, Calabasas, CA and funded by the USA Department of Education and USAID, and coordinated through Civitas Africa and Civitas International.
