Ian - Ciyawo English Dictionary ProjectProject Updates RSS


Project Code: MLdi413

After 10 years, the dictionary is in its final stages! On the 20th of December 2018 the first side of the dictionary was publicly launched by the Malawian Minister of Education, Science and Technology. A lot of dignitaries attended, including a large number of senior Yawo chiefs from various districts in Malawi. It was a very joyful occasion of which Ian, Wendy, Simeon and Ben were all able to participate in. The event was televised and shown on the evening news, and featured in major newspapers throughout the country!

We want to thank you for joining Ian over the past decade. This project would not be possible without your partnership. Your generous gifts over the years have helped to cover practical costs, including utilities, software, equipment and wages as well as the publishing of the first side of the dictionary.
