"Nchito Bwino"

Nchito Bwino means 'good job' or a 'big job' in the Bantu language of Chichewa. 'Chi' literally means 'the language of' and Chewa is a tribe in Malawi. Many of our EWB volunteers have lived amongst the Chewa tribe while doing work overseas in Malawi. Nchito Bwino to us means to live our professional lives in line with our personal values.
