Temwa works in the Nkhata Bay North district of northern Malawi. This is a remote and isolated region where 40% of people live on less than £1 a day, 16% are HIV positive and a third do not have enough food on a daily basis.
We run projects in five key areas, supporting some of the most vulnerable households of the region:
- health education
- schools support
These households include households headed by a female or child, those hosting one or more orphans, and those with a member who is HIV positive.
Our work also includes:
Training villagers to grow a variety of vegetables and fruit to improve the nutrition in their diet
Planting trees to combat the devastating effects of deforestation
Running HIV testing clinics and working to combat the stigma surrounding those who test positive Building school blocks and funding students through their secondary school education
