Malawi School Picture

Faculty and students throughout the semester will teleconference with the leadership and students of the Jacaranda School for Orphans in Blantyre, Malawi.

In Made For Kids Malawi, Otis students collaborate in interdisciplinary teams in a studio setting to conceive of and execute diverse projects with our community partner, Jacaranda School for Orphans.

Students and faculty will fly to Malawi for a 2-week program working on-site with the Jacaranda School for Orphans to learn about the history and culture of Malawi. Students will visit the Museum of Malawi, tour the Society of Malawi and the Jacaranda Cultural Center, receive academic lectures, spend a night at Game Haven on a safari learning about the local wildlife, and work on their projects in multidisciplinary teams.
