Andrew is the Country Director for MANEPO, a consortium of over 60 Civil Society Organizations in Malawi working on Ageing issues. Andrew also works with START Network as a Regional Advisor for East & Southern Africa (3 days/month).

Andrew has made several breakthroughs by being the first Civil Society Leader to lead an aggressive and successful advocacy for an old age pension scheme in Malawi, realizing that social protection floors are increasingly recognised as a necessary and effective approach to ensure the benefits of development are shared fairly, and no one is left behind.

In 2016, Andrew was one of the Founding Directors for Southern Africa Regional Age Network (SARAN). A regional body on ageing in Southern Africa aimed at advocating for appropriate, secure, sustainable, and predictable minimum social protection floors for vulnerable groups, like older persons, people with disabilities, etc,  across the region.

Andrew was born in Malawi, graduated from the University of Malawi with a Bachelor of Social Science. He later earned his Master of Business Administration (MBA) at the Malawi Polytechnic, a constituent college of the University of Malawi. Andrew is currently pursuing a PhD in Development Studies.
