In memory of Juliet Malamba

It is with a very heavy heart that we announce on behalf of the TRANSFORM family the passing of our colleague and friend Ms Juliet Malamba. Juliet was one of the most experienced TRANSFORM Master Trainers, having delivered several trainings in Malawi and Zambia and having directly contributed herself to the design and revision of various training modules. Most importantly she was an esteemed professional and teacher, a great friend, an all-round lovely person to work and have a laugh with and there is no way we can express how missed she would be by all of us, in Malawi, across Africa and beyond.

Our most heartfelt condolences go to her family, friends and colleagues in Malawi in this tough time. 

May Her Soul Rest in Eternal Peace.
