Chigodi is a rural community in central Malawi, where most of the population rely on agriculture for their livelihood. Children are going hungry and suffering from malnutrition, as families struggle to produce enough crops to feed, and there is little understanding about nutrition. 

Many parents in Chigodi can't afford school fees or supplies, and there aren't enough teachers, so classrooms are overcrowded. School dropout rates are high, and literacy rates are low.

Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By sponsoring children in Chigodi community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives.

Your support is helping Chigodi community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

Through decades of experience, we have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of these community-focused solutions, for every child you sponsor, 4 more benefit too!

Together, we are tackling the hard problems, such as changing mindsets and behaviours to address the root causes of poverty. We're focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for the children of Chigodi community.

“Before, our school had no toilet and we went to the bathroom in the bushes. Now we have a toilet and we enjoy using it and don’t get sick as often.”
