About us

a unique place where local and international people meet

Since 2011 Pakachere Backpackers & Creative Centre has started in Zomba, Malawi. It is an unique place where local and international people meet. Pakachere has the aim to be a place where people from different backgrounds share knowlegde, learn from each other and gain new ideas.

Runned by Locals

Pakachere is a combination of a backpackers for guest to stay and a creative centre for people to meet. Besides a Dutch manager, the place is completely runned by local people. At the moment we employed thirteen locals, which are working at Pakachere and get the chance to develop their skills in the hospitality industry. We try to work as much as possible with individual suppliers for our purchases.

Our Vision

Pakachere is the meeting place in Zomba where local and international people gather, develop, share and inspire each other.

Our mission

Pakachere is a social business, with main activities the backpackers and creative centre, that can independent inspire local and international people to develop their potential and share knowledge and experience in order to stimulate social-economic change.

An initiative by Stichting Be More (Be More Foundation)

Pakachere is an initiative by Stichting Be More (Be More Foundation). Be More started Pakachere as a social business with the idea to use tourism for local development and to give people the opportunity to meet, share and inspire in a different way. We want to make  a (small) economic change, but also inspire people to do the same and follow their own dream with their individual ideas. Communities in countries as Malawi are full of people with talent, but they don’t get the opportunity to share and develop these skills. Pakachere wants to provide a podia where it is possible to work on these talents.
