    Soccer is his greatest love. And Jabbes Chokhotho, from the outskirts of Blantyre, is really on the ball. He lives in a disadvantaged district, almost a ghetto. But now the game has transformed his life. "Play Soccer Malawi" is a local initiative whose sponsors include the international football organization FIFA and the country's national organization. The American NGO is 15 years old and active in seven countries in western and southern Africa. Some 400 children from around southern Malawi's commercial capital Blantyre are receiving coaching. Jabbes is already in the second phase and now attending secondary school thanks to the organization. For more go to http://www.dw.de/program/global-3000/s-11487-9798

  • 旅する鈴木483:Across the lake, to the Island @Malawi

    Finally, we are on the way to Chizumulu Island. It was a refugee-looking small ship with the cheapest rate for 100 kwacha, which uses a rowboat to deliver passengers from the port. The lower floor of the ship was dark because of the low ceiling and full with local women. And there were many exhausted foreign tourists with umbrellas in the upper floor with holes in the ceiling. After 5 hours on the lake, silence and drowsiness fill the entire ship by the time we saw the island coming closer. There is no port on the island, another rowboat ride from the ship to the coast. It is a small island with a high hill. It looks quite fine to me. translated by Mizue Kawamura いざ、チズムル島へ。ンカタベイの船着場から僕らが乗り込んだのは、一見難民船かと思うような小型の船。最安値のこの船は、船着場を使用せず、手漕ぎボートで船まで100クワチャ。1階は低い天井の暗闇の中に、オバちゃんたちがギッシリ。2階では、穴のあいた天井のし...

This is one lovely area. Full of life, friendly staff, delicious food and amazing company. The Ulisa fishing area is also close by where we had a chance to learn, interact and know a lot more about life on the island from the locals. Ulisa Bay Lodge is a sanctuary for the explorers of the world. The lodge itself is a collection of chalets set around Ulisa Bay, all with stunning views over the lake and arguably one of the best sunsets in Africa. For Bookings and Enquiries please email: ulisabaylodge@gmail.com While we were on the island we also visited Mango drift, with one long beautiful white sand beach. Mango Drift is a backpacker’s lodge located on the west side of Likoma Island on the beautiful waters of Lake Malawi. For Bookings and Enquiries please email: enquiries@mangodrift.com We could not visit the island without going to see the historical and famous St Peter's Cathedral. The third largest cathedral in Central Africa! Built in 1903, dedicated in September 1905 and was consecrated in 1911 on an upland site. This was one amazing tour we had and we would recommend you to try it whenever you visit Malawi or planning a holiday locally. More info: www.travelmalawiguide.com

Zoom into shore village 17. SOUNDBITE: (Chinyanja) Pedro Bernado Isufu, Passenger : "We are regular travellers on this boat. The introduction of the Ilala to the Mozambican side of the lake has been to our advantage because there is no proper transport for us to go shopping at the bigger villages. Before we would travel by slow small boats or walk long distances." 18. Man with goat between knees 19. SOUNDBITE: (Chinyanja) Maria Manuel, Passenger : "The time factor is the main advantage.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Charlie Harper, Lodge owner, Malawi: "Where we live, Ruarwe, we're just turning up there now, there's no road access, no hospital, no communications, no electricity, no anything, so the Ilala really is a lifeline for myself and especially for the people that live here." 28. Charlie Harper on board 29. SOUNDBITE: (English) Charlie Harper, Lodge owner, Malawi: 'When I was building this place (his lodge) obviously the only way to get supplies; cement, poles, timber, anything like that to get up there and build, had to come from this boat. there were many times, especially in the first few years when I was carrying tons and tons of cargo on the ship - (sound of ship's horn) - excuse me." 30. Captain Mponde blowing horn 31. SOUNDBITE: (English) Lameck Mponde, Senior Captain of the Ilala ferry : "And one other thing we checked is on the steering. You cannot believe it! We have got a steering, a motor, which has been there ever since 1952. It's running, it's perfect. So I'm sure so long as we attend to her, and maintain her, look after her carefully, she's there to serve for another 20 years" 32. View out the back of the Ilala with Malawian flag LEAD IN: In Central Africa, a vast inland freshwater ocean forms a crucial transportation network for people of the region. And in a world consumed by technology, the mode of transport itself is a rare wonder. The Ilala is a ship built in Scotland in 1952. It has been ferrying passengers and cargo on Lake Malawi for more than fifty years. STORYLINE: Mponde says his history with the ship goes back a long way.
