KUMUDZI KUWALE


NO ONE SHOULD BE LEFT IN THE DARK


Kumudzi Kuwale means "Bringing Light to the Villages" in Chichewa, the most widely spoken language in Malawi, and is a social for-profit company registered under the Malawi Companies Act 13135. The company was registered in August 2013, and is currently owned 41,8% by YouthCode in Nkhotakota, Malawi, 54% by the Grønn-Hagen Bjørke Malawi Foundation in Norway, and 4,2% by other smaller investors. The company was founded by YouthCode (at that time known as Nkhotakota Youth Organisation). What started off as a project with only a single employee in 2013, has rapidly grown into one of the biggest employers in Nkhotakota Boma and a large contributor to local empowerment and progress in villages across Malawi. Kumudzi Kuwale currently has 17 full time employees in Nkhotakota, 2 in Kasungu, and more than 50 in the field. The company seeks to provide every layer of society with access to sustainable, renewable and affordable electricity and light, and does this through its three solar business units; installations, charging stations and shops.
