LOVE A VILLAGE
Love a Village works to bring life changing hope to African villages in northern Malawi. Side by side, and in collaboration with local leaders, we establish a sustainable and healthy future for the most vulnerable communities, by meeting their needs for food, water and much more.
We have proven that the cycle of poverty can be broken, by empowering families to stay healthy, and by giving them the skills and training needed to become independent and self-sustaining.
The Ongoing Challenge
In 2013, The World Bank ranked Malawi as the poorest country in the world, with an annual GDP of $226.50 USD per person. In 2015 flooding in southern Malawi led to a national disaster which is expected to make things worse for years to come. With the north also experiencing intensive rains at that time, the country continues to experience extreme food shortages.

and live independently!
"Their only suggestion was that we keep on helping the poor, which I have always been eager to do."
