This year our Christmas fundraising will go to the work of All We Can in Malawi.
We are working in partnership with inspiring local organisations in the Chikwawa and Nsanjue regions of Malawi.
Malawi is one of the most impoverished countries in the world. While making progress, having held five peaceful presidential elections since 1993 and achieved steady growth in GDP, around 50% of the population still live below the international poverty line. There are many problems in Malawi that have contributed to such a high poverty rate: An over-reliance on subsistence farming, steady population growth, and the impact of the HIV/Aids crisis.
All We Can is working in the southern-most regions of Malawi with local organisations committed to seeing long-term and transformative change in the communities they work in.
