Hey, I’m Lisa. I’ve spent one year in Malawi doing volunteer work, ever since then it’s my second home and I am so very happy that I have the opportunity to work in this motivated team. 
My responsibilities at Taste of Malawi are the recruitment and co-ordination of volunteers for our European staff as well as international and Malawian volunteers that support our centre in Lilongwe.
I am currently doing a double degree in Marseille, France, so my favourite things to do are going to the beach or going for a hike in a national park near Marseille.

Hi! I am Lucía and I study International Business in Marseille, France. At Taste of Malawi I am in the Human resources team, where I’m in charge of the structuring of our European team and of the recruitment of new team members. I give heart because it’s time to prioritise women and give them the rightful place they have in our society. This is why I fight for women’s empowerment; one of the keys for the development of our societies, not only at a political or economic level but also in terms of ethics and rights.

Hey, I’m Anna and I’m a fashion designer and bespoke tailor. At the moment I’m in further education for my master craftsman’s diploma. I’m in the design team of Taste of Malawi and also take care of our quality management. I was immediately appealed by Taste of Malawi for two reasons: First, it is a project, that addresses my craft. And secondly, have I spent a year in Malawi as a volunteer between 2009 and 2010. I love the idea of women being supported in setting up their own business. It is a huge difference whether you have to learn something on your own or if you are trained by someone.

Hi, I’m Mareike! I work as a marketing expert at a social media consultancy in Berlin. At Taste of Malawi, I write texts for the website and press releases. I also translate them so we can reach an international audience, but the main reason is that this way, our friends in Malawi can understand what we say about the project. I give heart because it’s important to support these women on their life-changing way to independence!
