My name is Frank Kamanga, I am a lecturer of Economics at Catholic University of Malawi. I am the leader of Basic Income Malawi Group. The group is made of 10 executive members. Basic Income Malawi Group is the official representative of Basic Income Earth Network in Malawi. I am a member of the outreach committee and the modelling committee of Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN). I always network with different BIEN outreach committee members through monthly meetings. Meanwhile, the Malawian Basic Income Group is also in partnership with an Australian based think tank working on basic income, Global Unification International. Currently with Global Unification International we are implementing an awareness and social media mobilization project on Facebook at three levels; Malawi, Africa and Global Level. Through this Facebook awareness campaign we want to reach 500,000 people around the world with basic income message. Everyday we are adding people in the Global Unification Basic Income Page. Current we have country chapters such as Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Somalia and Nigeria for Global Unification Africa basic income campaign. I am also an author of two basic income research papers. The first is tilted UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME PERSCEPTIONS FROM MALAWI, A PREDOMINANTLY AGRARIAN ECONOMY and the second one is titled COMPARING AND CONTRASTING BETWEEN UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME AND CASH TRANSFERS.
I am raising money to travel to Finland to participate in the 2018 Basic Income Congress in August 2018. The funds will be used for airfare and upkeep in Finland. At the Congress i want to present my research study on Basic Income perceptions in Malawi. I will also share posters of the works of basic income in Malawi. In addition I will also network with fellow basic income champions across the world.
