Chigodi Community, Malawi

Chigodi has rich fertile soils but families only have a small piece of land to grow their food and children are not getting enough to eat. We have been partnering with them since 2011.

We’re teaching parents how to cook nutritious food for their children and ensuring that healthcare is readily available by training local health staff. We’ve also partnered with local schools to improve the quality of teaching and the number of staff so children have access to the best education.

We have already achieved great things in the Chigodi community by helping children receive an education and ensuring their schools are a healthy place to learn.
Severe flooding has torn through family’s homes and crops across Southern Africa. We urgently need your help to support these children and their families with emergency healthcare, food, safe water and sanitation.

We’re working with the people of Chigodi to build a community where children thrive.

We’ve been partnering with Chigodi for seven years now and are starting to tackle the harder problems such as changing mindsets about the right to education for girls or early marriage. We’re focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for Chigodi community. 

After these projects are complete we ensure all our work is sustainable, and that the community is set up to identify and respond to needs as they arise. We plan for our partnership to continue until 2025 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
