Community-led development

We work to bring about sustainable community development in remote, rural areas of northern Malawi – one of the poorest countries 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 and climate change; 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 accomplished some incredible feats, including:
