Meet the Makers
- Located in Southern Africa, Malawi remains one of the poorest countries in the world, with over 60 percent of the population living below the poverty line earning less than $1.90 per day.
- Poverty is concentrated in rural areas, where many families are unable to meet their basic needs or send their children to school due to a lack of funds.
- We work to end intergenerational poverty and improve the livelihoods of marginalized communities in rural Malawi through a holistic model using socio economic, educational, and environmental opportunities.
