Jackson Mwaini is a development practitioner who studied Development Studies with a minor in Anthropology from the Catholic University of Malawi and graduated in 2022. He is very passionate about understanding micro-communities and how they deal with their daily situations; he employs an insider’s perspective to serve the community. Jackson previously served in the Student Union of his alma mater as an Off Campus Representative in which he connected the surrounding community with the institution, and his primary goal was to incorporate the ideas of the community into the institution’s decision-making. He advocated for a stakeholder representative in the university’s committee, where community members are also aware and have a say when making decisions. He worked with Lighthouse Trust in Blantyre as a Data Entry and Disintegration Officer during his studies. This role involved transferring and disintegrating data from HTS Registers to the organisation’s server. He also worked with the Campaign for Female Education in the Educate a Child project (EAC) as a Temporary Data Clerk in the Mwanza and Dedza districts. He also volunteered with the Malawi Red Cross Society (MRCS) as a Data entry clerk in the Saving Lives and Livelihoods (SLL) project in the Blantyre Division, where he entered data on people receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. He also volunteered in the Community Case Management of Cholera (CCMC) project, where he operated an Oral Rehydration Point (ORP) as a hygiene promoter and provided hygiene promotion messages and initial treatment to suspected Cholera patients.
