Do you want youth insights in Malawi?

Interested in partnering with NYCOM?

The National Youth Council of Malawi (NYCOM) is a non-profit making parastatal institution which supports youth organisations by providing them with certificates, trainings, and sub-grants and materials which we get from our partners. The Council receives funding from the government, however, most of the activities are implemented with support of donors and partners as in most cases funding from the government is not adequate to cover both administration and programme related costs.

Do you want to partner with the youth in Malawi?

We are mandated to stand out as a gateway to youth work in Malawi. With years of research, engaging and learning, we partner with like-minded agencies for sustainable youth development that is based on insights and evidence.
