HOPEmalawiUK started when a bunch of friends decided to try make a difference for the people of Nkhata Bay. Nkhata Bay because of how the people in Nkhata Bay came to the aid of one of our members in 1996. More here.
Since then, others have heard the story and got involved.
To us It's important to encourage personal contact with people we support rather than give to a larger charity. In this day and age it's possible to know how a sponsored student is doing in school, see how a nursery build is coming along or whether the netball team won their last game. It's a community of like minded people and these days communities have no borders. They inspire us as much as we inspire them.
