Children in Malawi face several obstacles including poverty, high levels people living with HIV and AIDS and frequent exposure to malaria. Additionally, with climate change, worsened by deforestation, Malawi has become prone to disasters, leaving an already-poor population much poorer.
This landlocked country is bordered by Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania. Since 1994, Malawi has been a democracy and held elections. However, the economy has not grown fast enough to lift people out of poverty.
Our teams have been working in Malawi since 1982. We partner with local actors and the government to improve the well- being of children, especially the children and the most vulnerable.
