Malawi, officially the Republic of Malawi, is a landlocked country in southeast Africa that was formerly known as Nyasaland. Malawi is among the smallest countries in Africa. Lake Malawi takes up about a third of Malawi's area. Malawi is among the world's least-developed countries. The economy is heavily based on agriculture, with a largely rural population. The Malawian government depends heavily on outside aid to meet development needs, although this need (and the aid offered) has decreased since 2000.

While the enrollment rate of the Malawian primary education system is high at 97.5%, ranking it 44th in the world, the quality of education is ranked 134th showing that improvement is needed. The enrollment into secondary education drops significantly to 43.4% ranking it 120th and the tertiary education enrollment is at just 0.8%.

Malawi has a three-tier healthcare system in which each level is connected by a patient referral system. However, just like other systems in Malawi, it does not function. This is largely due to lack of manpower, lack of basic/expert skills set, overpopulation, lack of equipment/technology, corruption, lack of political commitment, and lack of sufficient funds.

Across the country Malawians struggle for access to IT and the internet. Malawi ranks low for technological readiness, ranking at 134th for ICT use and 132nd for internet users, with only 9.6% of the population connected. Internet access in schools is ranked 129th in the world.
