Amandine International Chef Placement is proud to be partnering with Kuti Wildlife Reserve to find a volunteer chef who can help to train local staff and contribute towards this great charity’s efforts in preserving the local communities and wildlife in Malawi.

Kuti Wildlife Reserve is a non-profit organization, where all the revenue generated by the reserve goes back into their projects and the local community.

We are looking for a chef for a minimum of three weeks to help train the Malawian staff in basic culinary professionalism, hygiene and presentation of food.  This exciting challenge will involve using eco friendly stoves for food preparation and sourcing ingredients from Kuti’s organic vegetable garden to create innovative and delicious meals presented beautifully – all this surrounded by thousands of hectares of African bush and wildlife! If this sounds like an opportunity you don’t want to miss then please get in touch!

Amandine International Chef Placement will contribute to the Kuti Wildlife Reserve by paying for the cost of accommodation and food for the chef during this job. The chef themselves would need to pay for their own flights, visas and pre-travel immunizations.

The Republic of Malawi, nicknamed “The Warm Heart of Africa”, is a landlocked country in southeast Africa that was formerly known as Nyasaland. Bordered by Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique it has an estimated population of nearly 17 million people.  The name Malawi comes from the Maravi an old name of the Nyanja people that inhabit the area.

Malawi is among the world’s least-developed countries with very low life expectancy, high infant mortality rate and a high prevalence of HIV/AIDS.  The Malawian government depends heavily on outside aid to help them improve education, poverty and healthcare,  protect the environment,  and address the issues of poaching and climate change.    Since 2005, Malawi has developed several programs that focus on these issues, and the country’s outlook appears to be improving, with a rise in the economy, education and healthcare seen in the last years.  The help of charities such as Kuti Wildlife Reserve is invaluable in helping the country to achieve these changes.

Kuti’s main ongoing goal is to protect African biodiversity by changing local perceptions by:

  • preserving and documenting biodiversity of wildlife by means of education to cultivate respect for the natural world and offering a hands-on learning experience for local children
  • involving local communities with conservation projects to develop sustainable livelihoods
  • preserving and regenerating the African bush including distributing eco-friendly stoves to local communities, planting trees and through education
  • offering sustainable Eco-Tourism
  • raising awareness about HIV/AIDS, Nutrition & Family Planning
  • sharing knowledge to empower future generations to make sustainable decision
