Berger Badere Bellegie is part of Okapi Team in Malawi. Founded in 2016 at Malawi’s Dzaleka refugee camp, Okapi Team is a group of young alumni of the camp who provide assistance to communities living in Dzaleka and its surrounding area. Okapi Team focuses on educating young women and men for a better future. Beyond giving them an opportunity to join education initiatives and start apprenticeships, Okapi provides them room to expand their talents. For example, the Okapi Dancing Crew performed at the Tumaini Festival in 2017, and was then invited to perform at big events in Malawi’s capital city, where it has become well known.
