We work to bring about sustainable community-led development in remote,  rural areas of northern Malawi – one of the poorest countries in the world. 

Since 2003, we’ve worked in Nkhata Bay North, a remote area on the edge of Lake Malawi, home to 145 villages of around 55,000 people. Most people live in a large, flat lakeside area, although there are also some villages in the upland mountain range. Overall, the region is extremely isolated and receives little government help. Some of the main problems facing communities are chronic food shortages, high rates of HIV/AIDS, limited access to education, deforestation, lack of healthcare, few roads leading to isolation, and limited employment opportunities. 

What we do 

Our mission is to develop self-sufficient communities by supporting projects in education, health, agriculture, and forestry. 

How we do it 

  • We provide agriculture and forestry training and sustainable growing techniques. 

  • We plant trees to combat the effects of deforestation and climate change. 

  • We support HIV testing clinics and HIV support groups and counselling. 

  • We work with communities to provide them with access to safe clean water and sanitation and hygiene training.

  • We help improve children’s literacy skills and fund students through secondary school. 

How can you get Involved 

Temwa relies on the generous support of individuals and organisations to fund our  work each year. We  believe by working together we can bring about lasting sustainable change to the lives of the people of  Nkhata Bay North. There are lots of ways you can support us from making a donation, taking part in, or  organising an event, becoming a Temwa corporate partner or even becoming a volunteer.
