Etta Kamtokoma graduated from the Catholic University of Malawi with a Bachelor’s Degree in Development Studies. She joined an organization called Team Oasis. The organization mobilizes resources and empowers needy young people living with HIV. As an aspiring development practitioner, it was a good platform and channel for her to reach the grassroots. After graduating, she joined the Youth Wave Changemakers leadership training program in the 2022-2023 cohort. The program builds youth leaders who are passionate and committed to impacting communities by solving challenges using innovative solutions in sustainable ways. This platform has also helped her to grasp the concept of leadership. The many areas she covered during the program include social media branding and presence, communication, leadership, and applications. Through the same program, Etta attended the National Open Distance and E-learning (ODEL) symposium on “Innovative, technological and knowledge-based Ecosystem, the key to Human Capital Development.” She also worked with the Catholic Health Commission as an intern in the Monitoring and Evaluation department. Upon receiving a grant from USAID through IREX (Youth Excel), the organization conducted Implementation Research, assessing the impact of Menstrual Health and Hygiene Education. While working with CHC, Etta received capacity-building training on Qualitative data processing using ATLAS. ti 22, organized by the CHC and WritersOn Consulting. She joined CorpsAfrica as a Volunteer and is confident that the service will build and deepen her passion to serve others.
