Salome Disi (Malawi, 21) loves reading and watching films. Salome finished her secondary school in 2012 and started her study in Journalism at Blantyre International University. Between January and July 2015, she is assisting the project lead on all tasks related to the Ndirande Slum Project. After receiving her Bachelor in Journalism, Salome hopes to continue with a study in Mass Communication, probably outside Malawi. Her ultimate goal is to organise and execute large projects in multimedia journalism. As a journalist she hopes to make this world a better place to live in.
Slums, as many Westerners think, are a huge obstacle to development. This project challenges this idea, showing that slums can be an engine for poverty eradication.
