We are working in partnership with inspiring local organisations in the Chikwawa and Nsanjue regions of Malawi.
Malawi is one of the most impoverished countries in the world. While making progress, having held five peaceful presidential elections since 1993 and achieved steady growth in GDP, around 50% of the population still live below the international poverty line. There are many problems in Malawi that have contributed to such a high poverty rate: An over-reliance on subsistence farming, steady population growth, and the impact of the HIV/Aids crisis.
All We Can is working in the southern-most regions of Malawi with local organisations committed to seeing long-term and transformative change in the communities they work in.

Churches Action in Relief and Development (CARD)
CARD is a church based organisation supporting local communities to become more resilient to disasters and climate change. They work with local people by providing support to those living with HIV/AIDS, providing access to clean water and sanitation and developing livelihoods and food security. All We Can is supporting CARD’s work in Nsanje District and is working with CARD to help them to become all that they can, so that they can make a positive and long-lasting difference in all the vulnerable and marginalised communities where they work.
Adolescent Girls Literacy+ (AGLIT+)
AGLIT+ has a combined literacy and health education programme for rural adolescent girls and boys aged 10 – 19 years that have missed out on school. The combined literacy and health education programme, is a non-clinical health intervention that was introduced as one way of tackling poor reproductive health of young women and adolescent girls. The goal is to improve girls’ and boys’ health-seeking behaviour especially reproductive health through:
- Acquisition of literacy skills
- New or modified health knowledge
- Identification of strategies to overcome obstacles to health
The Adolescent Girls’ Literacy Project (AGLIT) addresses issues of school dropout, literacy and numeracy for vulnerable young girls who might feel societal pressures to wed early or leave school prematurely to assume household duties.
Eagles Relief and Development Programme
Eagles’ vision is to see communities that struggle with poverty become self-reliant, prosperous and healthy; helping communities to access clean water and adapt to challenges brought by climate change to tackle food insecurity. They do this by mobilising local churches, helping them to work with their communities and the most marginalised and vulnerable groups such as children, older people, the chronically ill, orphans, widows and people with disabilities to identify their needs and find the best ways to meet them.
Foundation for Civic Education (FACE)
FACE work to empower communities to improve their health status and livelihood security. They support people in a range of ways including through education, nutritional support and education, HIV/AIDS awareness and helping communities to be better prepared for disasters. FACE also has a community radio station, Gaka FM (gaka means drum and was the way of signalling for a meeting because people had something to say).
