Dance challenges

Dance challenges

Why not take part in an online dance challenge to get moving and grooving? Following the success of the Jerusalema challenge, which took Africa and the world by storm, we've found some more dance challenges that are proving popular in Malawi. You can take part with friends, with family, or by yourself.

261 Fearless

Join a walking or running club

In Zambia, a group of women have set up the Fearless 261 group, which offers safety in numbers for women while exercising. In South Africa and Eswatini, there are organised Parkrun events. Exercising with others can help keep your motivation levels up and can also be safer, especially in urban settings and bigger cities. Keep an eye out, especially in early mornings and around dusk and you may spot these groups making their way around your neighbourhood. Why not approach a local group and ask to join, or take inspiration from them and set up your own group in Malawi with your friends and family?
