Thank you for raising a life-changing $1.1 million for children in Malawi last year!

<br><br>Thank you for raising a life-changing $1.1 million for children in Malawi last year!

The money you raised is giving families the chance to build a brighter future for themselves. 

Right now, families in Malawi are receiving the tools and training they need to build resilient and sustainable farming to reduce the impact of climate change – and it's all because of you!

Your dollars go further than you might think – supporting families to be more resilient and feel safer with a steady income.


Your fundraising is giving families an income, food and education.

<p>

So far you've supported 2,844 farmers to improve their crops through new techniques and drought-resistant seeds. These small seeds make a big difference. Each seed uses less water to grow and can withstand the harsh, dry Malawi climate.

Every cent you raised is making a life-changing difference for the world's most vulnerable children. Thanks to you, 2,682 kids are benefiting from watering systems that feed crops. A bigger crop means more food to eat, plus extra to sell.

Thanks to you, 200 families are already part of the goat-pass-on scheme, with many more to join. You've given families the chance to build a brighter future for themselves, and to be better prepared for unexpected disasters like COVID-19.
