Serving the most vulnerable in rural Malawi

Malawi is regarded as one of the poorest countries in the world; in the remote regions, there’s acute poverty, widespread hunger and malnutrition.

Aid Africa, a small UK charity, powerfully impacts Malawi’s rural areas by running an integrated group of projects, each tailored to local need, designed to empower communities and help individuals in our target group: orphans, the elderly, those living with disabilities and the AIDS-affected.

Our focus this month...

Piglet power!

While in Malawi we set up our “Pass-on” Pig Project. We’re breeding pigs on site and giving out female piglets to vulnerable families.   

It’s a great opportunity for them to change their lives! 

When the piglet grows and has a litter, the first requirement is for a female piglet to be “passed-on” to another needy family, monitored by our staff, releasing the beneficiary from the obligation to our project. They’re then free to hold other offspring for breeding (developing a business),  growing on for food, or selling to fund basic needs within the household—often food, school fees or uniforms for their kids, urgent house repairs, or clothing and sanitary items. 

Each piglet is an invaluable asset, so good care is an investment, and their provision is helping each family to step away from poverty.    
And the community benefit multiplies, going on and on as the pass-on progresses…. 

Help us “grow” this project further by clicking  the “donate now” button for instant payment or options. 

Any amount is welcome and greatly appreciated...
...... and to enable us to continue to empower some of the poorest people on the planet, would you urgently consider setting up a monthly Standing Order to partner with us? See our Donations Page (via the "donate now" button) for more info....

Many thanks! 


Thanks from 60 vulnerable families.....

A warm “thank you” from 60 families who had no private toilet facilities, leaving little alternative to publicly using open fields despite frailty, age, and disability, risking health and a polluted environment.  

With your help we’ve built 60 household toilets- just simple units, a hand-dug 3m deep pit,  covered by a solid floor and a wrap-around bamboo structure, lined with plastic sheeting and covered with grass thatching for privacy.  

Each is expected to last for years, life changing for hundreds, improving hygiene, health and wellbeing. 

There’s more info on our “Latest News” page…...  

Thank you for your help….
