Smart Banda is from Mzimba, Malawi. He is a graduate of the University of Livingstonia, class of 2017, and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Health. He served as a Students’ Union Publicity Secretary for the University of Livingstonia, Law Campus and he was also a member of the UNILIA Public Health Society. Prior to CorpsAfrica, he did an internship at Rumphi District Hospital as a Public Health Officer for a year and also worked as a Research Assistant with a number of organizations. He is passionate about improving the health of people because he believes that the only way to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger in the country is by building a healthy Malawi first. The chance to work with CorpsAfrica is a great opportunity for him to make a direct positive impact on the health of people who are living in rural communities and are mostly sidelined from development. Smart believes that this will be a life-changing experience and he is excited to be part of it.
