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.

Empowering villagers

to escape extreme poverty

and live independently!

Wise Words​

Julie: "I'm starving ... Wait! That's not true!"


Our Friend: "In Malawi, starvation means you have nothing. No clothes, home, food, family. Nothing. It means more than just hunger for food. It is sad that people use that word in Canada when they are satisfied." 

Galatians 2:10


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