Duncan Mzengereza grew up in Blantyre but is originally from the southern district of Mulanje. He attended Phwezi Secondary School and graduated in June 2012. He then enrolled in Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR) in 2013, where he completed his Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition and Food Science. As they say that no man is an island, Duncan worked as a volunteer for International Citizen Service ( ICS) in September 2017, because he has always believed that the world could be far better if we could all dedicate our available resources, including time and energy, to help the less privileged. He believes in being part of a team of people working with others to help people who may not be able to help themselves. Duncan feels that volunteering creates a feeling of being part of something bigger than oneself. In September 2016, while on holiday from the University, Duncan worked for the Department of Public Health of the Mulanje District Health Office as a Nutrition Officer under the Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) program. Before joining CorpsAfrica, Duncan had been working as a Clinical Aide for Lighthouse Trust at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Umodzi Family Center.
