The Nu Skin Family Visits Malawi 2017
May 30, 2017
Next month, a group of Nu Skin sales leaders from around the globe will spend a week in Malawi. In addition, a group of employees will also join with our family of sales leaders and executives for the first time in Nu Skin’s history! There they will be able to see the results of Nu Skin's efforts, through the Force for Good Foundation and the Nourish the Children initiative, to bolster the country and its people.
The groups will attend the annual School for Agriculture for Family Independence (SAFI) graduation. Attendees will celebrate with the graduating families and learn about the success of the current farmers and graduates who learn and incorporate agricultural techniques. "I’m thrilled to be part of such an exciting time for these families,” says Andrea Christensen, a member of the Nu Skin family who organized the trip for the employee group. “This school has such an impact on the lives of these families and hope for a better future. It’ll be amazing to see that!” They will also visit communities that have been changed by the Children's Brighter Future initiative.
In addition to these heart-warming experiences, attendees will also have the opportunity to tour the Madalitso Plant that produces thousands of bags of VitaMeal every month. Another highlight of the trip will be to visit the Mtendere Orphanage. It is here that students receive VitaMeal daily during school. Here, attendees will be able to distribute VitaMeal to the children. “I’m very excited to visit the orphanage,” says Clark Warnick, an employee who has been with Nu Skin for 28 years. “To see first-hand how my contribution, and that of so many others, has benefitted the lives of these children will be very special to me.”
“It is both heart-warming and gratifying to see the good that is being done by the Nu Skin family in the lives of these incredible children,” said Ruth Todd, Nu Skin Vice President of Public Affairs. “So many times, during our week in Africa, people will feel overwhelmed with gratitude for all of the good Nu Skin sales leaders, customers, and employees have contributed to this great work in Malawi. There is still much to do, but because of their generosity, we are off to a great start.”
We express our thanks for the continued support and donations to these programs. Malawian families are benefitting greatly by the generosity of many.
