Welcome to African Vision Malawi(formerly known as The Landirani Trust)
to see a "healthy, educated and self-sufficient community in Malawi".
The people of Malawi want to help themselves.
Since 2005 African Vision Malawi has been helping children & vulnerable people in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world.
We can empower them to become self-sufficient and independent.
What we do
Sam’s Training Village is a self-sustaining training village, built on a 17-acre site. The objective is to support a move away from hand-outs and to train thousands of local people out of poverty.Find out more
11% of children die before reaching their 5th birthday.
50% of under 5's deaths are due to Malaria.
11% of Malawians are living with HIV/AIDS. (WHO)
We have 12 centres supporting the under-5's and support pupils in Primary, Secondary and Further Education, typically 40 secondary and 20 university students at any given time.Find out more
Water & Sanitation
Today, many of Malawi’s poorest and most marginalised people don’t have clean water to drink, decent toilets or good hygiene. Without these basics, we cannot begin to help them with better education, health and self-sufficiency.Find out more
Our immune systems depend on good nutrition. In Malawi people depend on their maize harvest to the exclusion of many highly-nutritious foods. Deforestation on a massive scale leads to Malawi losing about 300km2 of forest land every year.Find out more
Celebrate & Give
Most fundraising comes from personal donations. You can help us through regular monthly giving; leaving a legacy; pledging gifts from a birthday; or running a fundraising event. Please consider one or more of these as it’s so easy to help.Find out more

With much of our Fundraising cut back in recent years, do consider supporting us with a small standing order. We have reduced some of our field activities to minimise the effect on our staff and the most vulnerable, but please help if you can by donating above. Thank you!
