Everything we’ve achieved over the past 18 years simply wouldn’t have been possible without the continued support of the extended Temwa family – our staff, volunteers, fundraisers, donors, and partners, both in the UK and Malawi.
If you’re inspired to join us in our mission to develop self-sufficient communities in northern Malawi, then we’d love to have you on board!
From baking cakes to climbing Kili, and from hosting music nights to running the New York Marathon, over the years our wonderful supporters have come up with ingenious and exciting ways to raise invaluable funds for our projects.
If you’d like to organise your own fundraising event for us – no matter how big or small – we’d love for you to join our community of supporters! Get in touch with us on [email protected] or 0117 287 2892 to discuss any ideas and find out how we can work together.
COVID-19 Lockdown Challenges or Milestone Celebrations
During COVID-19 restrictions, why not take up a living-room challenge?
From drinking only water to 200 burpees-a-day, people are setting themselves new goals and you could transform lives as you do it. Raise money for our #InThisTogether COVID-19 Crisis Appeal and you can help provide urgent health kits and awareness raising to vulnerable communities in Malawi.
Have a birthday coming up? Get your friends and family to donate to Temwa and we’ll send you video birthday messages and ideas for ways to celebrate virtually.

Take on a challenge
Take on a challenge
Challenge yourself and achieve great things whilst making a real difference to the lives of the people we work with in Malawi.
Whether you’re a runner, cyclists, walker, swimmer or just someone up for a challenge, we’ve got a perfect event for you. By joining #TeamTemwa you’ll have the perfect motivation to get fit, have fun and make new memories!
And if the physical challenges aren’t for you, fear not! We can support you in planning various foodie, film or creative fundraisers that gather friends and funds.
We’re lucky to have had lots of fantastic volunteers come through our door over the years – from students looking to gain some work experience, through to retired finance directors keen to share their wisdom. We plan all our volunteer placements to ensure that not only do we receive valuable support, but also that our volunteers have the best possible experience.
There’s a variety of ways you can get involved, both in the UK and – occasionally – in Malawi:
internships in communications, trust fundraising, events fundraising, and programmes;
joining our Summer Festival Tour team;
lending a hand at exciting events, such as art auctions or concerts;
cheering on our fundraisers as they take on challenges for us

Work with us
Work with us
We operate from two offices – one in the UK and one in Malawi. Our office in Mzuzu, in northern Malawi, is the heart of our operations, from where we manage and run all our projects. Many of the 32-strong team in Malawi are from Nkhata Bay North, the district in which we work, so this is their stomping ground – they know the landscape, the climate, and the communities better than anyone.
Our UK operations, focusing mostly on fundraising, are based in central Bristol. We’re a small team, headed up by our co-founder and Managing Director, Jo Hook.
There are no current positions at the moment. Please keep an eye out for any future vacancies or head to our volunteer page for other opportunities.
Leave a Legacy That Will Change Lives
Leave a legacy with Temwa so that you can change lives for years to come. With a gift in your will, Temwa can continue to work with communities to bring life-changing development to communities in Nkhata Bay North.
How can leaving a legacy help?
Leaving a legacy means bringing clean water to families, it means training farmers and improving food security, and it means providing a more secure future to children.
Since we started working in Nkhata Bay North in 2003, waterborne diseases have reduced by 85%, communities have planted over a million trees, and the Usisya library has received over 2000 visitors.
Your legacy will build on this work improving the future of thousands of people across northern Malawi.
If you’d like to know more about how Temwa supports communities in Nkhata Bay North, you can read more about our programmes here. If you have any questions about leaving a Legacy to Temwa please contact us at [email protected]
We’re always open to other ways of working together – get in touch with us via email ([email protected]) or phone (0117 403 1426) to discuss potential opportunities.
