My adventures in Malawi: Purpose. Partnership. Empowerment‪.‬ Stand Tall with Rachel Bell

    • Business

Welcome back to Stand Tall. This episode’s a bit different to our usual conversations. Today, I’m excited to share my own stand tall moment with you. 

Back in April 2023, I travelled to Malawi to lead a Women’s Partnership Challenge trip with Orbis Expeditions, a travel company specialising in sustainable tourism. 

The 10 day trip is for women, of all ages and backgrounds, who itch to have real purpose in their adventure. 

From a wildlife safari and eco-island stay to partnerships with female entrepreneurs and students - each experience is designed to benefit the local people, economy, and environment.

But the trip also aims to take travellers out of their comfort zones with personal challenges including a hike up Malawi’s highest mountain. 

This really was a trip of a lifetime and I feel incredibly lucky to be able to share my experiences with you. I hope you enjoy listening to the moments I captured during my time there.
