In a strategic move to enhance food security in the Southern African region, Astria Learning has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR). This agreement, signed on May 5th, 2024, in Lilongwe, marks a significant milestone in LUANAR’s journey towards integrating cutting-edge online educational platforms. This collaboration aims to empower students with advanced agritech programs, leveraging Astria Learning’s robust e-learning solutions to overcome the limitations of traditional learning and make education more accessible and effective.

This MoA aligns perfectly with Astria Learning’s vision of empowering professionals with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive within their communities. Under the visionary leadership of Vice Chancellor Professor Emmanuel Kaunda, LUANAR will harness Astria Learning’s robust e-learning solutions to provide unprecedented access to innovative agritech programs. This collaboration will bridge the current limitations of traditional learning, making education more accessible and effective for all students.

During the ceremony, Professor Kaunda expressed gratitude towards Jeff Bordes, CEO of Astria Learning, for partnering with LUANAR in this transformative educational venture. “This partnership is perfectly aligned with our strategic goals to enhance educational access and quality through technology,” said Professor Kaunda.

Astria Learning will support LUANAR’s implementation of advanced online programs that cover various disciplines, aiming to empower students with flexible, quality education. These programs are designed to complement LUANAR’s commitment to transforming agricultural education, thereby addressing food security challenges through informed and technologically empowered graduates.

In addition to transforming educational access, this collaboration extends to agriculture, a vital sector in Malawi. Astria Learning and Acres Club, led by Jeff Bordes, will integrate technology in agriculture to enhance food security and improve livelihoods. Acres Club, known for modern, sustainable large-scale farming, will train and employ LUANAR graduates. This initiative equips students with the skills needed to manage advanced agricultural practices, ensuring that educational advancements translate into tangible benefits for the sector.

Dr. Jeff Bordes, CEO of Astria Learning, commented on the partnership, “By combining LUANAR’s expertise in agriculture and natural resources with our advanced EdTech platforms, we are setting a precedent for the future of education in Malawi and beyond.
