Onga Community, Malawi

The Onga community rely heavily on the available land resources to produce food but it is not producing enough for growing children. We have been partnering with them since 2011.

We are working to reduce malnutrition by teaching mothers the importance of breastfeeding and reducing the incidences of diahorrea through cleaner water sources. We’re also improving all the schools in the area to increase the enrolment rate and ensure children have suitable facilities to learn in. 

We have already achieved great things in the Onga community by building clean water sources and teaching the community to manage them. 
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 Onga to build a community where children thrive.

We’ve been partnering with Onga 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 Onga 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.
