Documentary on the SMART Centre in Malawi
The CCAP SMART Centre in Malawi was recently visited by Laurène and Valentin, a French couple and travelling through Africa in our 4×4 van 'Uyo'. As part of their trip they visit interesting local initiatives and share their experiences through their blog.
At the SMART Centre they visited a few days and worked with Alex, one of the trained drillers. Laurène and Valentin made a very nice movie giving a good impression of the work of the SMART Centre and the entrepreneurs.
