Why fundraise for Temwa?
Temwa works in rural northern Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world. Nkhata Bay North, where we work, is located on the edge of Lake Malawi and is home to around 55,000 people. Most people living in this area live in a large, flat lakeside area, with the remaining living in very remote villages in the upland mountain range. The region is extremely isolated and receives very little or no government help. 40% of the population live on less than £1 a day, 16% are HIV-positive, and one in three people struggle to feed themselves each day.
By fundraising for Temwa, you will be helping bring about lasting change by helping supporting projects that:
- Provide communities with life-saving water filters that prevent harmful water-borne diseases
- Train villagers in the importance of sustainable farming good nutrition
- Plant trees to combat the effects of deforestation and climate change
- Run mobile HIV testing clinics and establish HIV support groups
- Promote young children’s literacy skills and fund students through secondary school
