July 2022 Update:

Please join us in welcoming Sothin Sambiri Ziba as the new chairperson of MCLD Malawi. We greatly appreciate the brilliant work of his predecessor, Arthur Nkosi of Corps Africa.

Sothin is an enthusiastic and creative leader with a passion to contribute to Malawi and Sub-Saharan Africa through quality research and development. He brings core skills in research, advocacy, capacity strengthening, community mobilization, and program management. 

Throughout his career, Sothin has been driving sustainable community-led approaches to address social-economic inequalities and environmental and health development policy. Sothin had been proactive in creating futuristic solutions towards institutional and Community readiness for emerging and pressing social development issues for youth, venerable communities, local early-stage institutions, and communities.
