I am originally from Cape Maclear, Malawi. I have a sponsor family who are from the UK but live in Malawi, and building this house was a project between us. The site is on my family land in a very nice part of the village right on the lake-shore.
My wife is from the UK, where we currently reside. She is a Doctor and I work in Physical Education and Personal Training.
I am very proud of the house we have built and the hard work of ALL my family.I hope you enjoy your stay in this home and experience the beauty that Cape Maclear has to offer.
