Kumvana Program

In the Chichewa dialect of Malawi, Kumvana means “unite so we may discuss and understand.” In this spirit, EWB’s Kumvana Program brings together 10-15 dynamic African professionals for leadership development and network building, while enhancing Canadians’ understanding of sub-Saharan Africa’s development realities.

The Kumvana program consists of an 8-week online learning course (approximately 3 hours per week), an African retreat, and a 1-month intensive Canadian experience. During the Fellows’ time in Canada, they will attend the EWB National Conference and receive specifically tailored training programs, a 3-day leadership development course, and participate in 2 weeks of organisational placements to learn from relevant professional networks. Participants will have the opportunity for an immersive cultural experience, and spend time living with Canadian host families. The Kumvana Program gives to its Fellows an opportunity to network and foster collaborations with Canadian professionals and extraordinary leaders from other African countries. Additionally, these changemakers will receive new skills, ideas, contacts, motivation and the potential to lead that will help guide their actions toward greater, sector-wide impact.

EWB Windsor introduced the Kumvana Fellowship program in the 2016-2017 year, by hosting Prossy Kawala and Ursula Banda.
