Malawi, a country struggling with poverty and vulnerability to natural disasters, has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, adding to its already daunting challenges. Over half of its population lives in poverty, with the majority relying on agriculture for their livelihoods.

However, there is hope on the horizon. Our organization has established a new Center for Education and Mentoring in Lilongwe, the capital city of Malawi. We have hired five mentors and plan to add more, with the goal of providing much-needed business and vocational mentoring to hundreds of thousands of individuals in this country. With our support, these individuals can gain the skills and tools necessary to improve their own lives and the lives of their families.

Through our efforts, we hope to create a ripple effect of positive change, empowering people to break the cycle of poverty and build a brighter future for themselves and their communities. Let’s come together to support the people of Malawi in their journey towards a better tomorrow.
