Our Story

Temwa facilitates sustainable community development in Malawi, Africa. We support people in remote, rural areas of northern Malawi, now the poorest country in the world. We train villagers to grow a variety of vegetables and fruit to improve their nutritional intake; plant trees to combat the devastating effects of deforestation, run HIV testing clinics and work to combat the associated stigma and fund students through their secondary school education.

Since we were founded in 2003, we’ve had some fantastic achievements. These include:
