Welcome to African Vision Malawi

(known as The Landirani Trust in Malawi).

Our vision...

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.

Donate now to help us help children & vulnerable people in Malawi.

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.

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.

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.
