Temwa works in remote, rural areas in northern Malawi where 40% of people live on less than £1 a day, 16% are HIV positive and a third do not have enough food on a daily basis. Our work supports some of the most vulnerable households in the region such as those which are headed by a female or child, are hosting one or more orphans or where someone is HIV positive.

Our mission is to develop self-sufficient communities by supporting projects in educationhealth,agri-forestry and micro-finance. We train villagers to grow a variety of vegetables and fruit to improve their nutritional intake; plant trees to combat the devastating effects of deforestation, run HIV testing clinics and work to combat the associated stigma and fund students through their secondary school education.

At the heart of our work, we make sure all our projects are developed in partnership with the people we support. That way we can work together to lift them out of poverty and create lasting change for the future.
