PLAN IN MALAWI

Plan has been working in Malawi since 1994, helping poor children to access their rights to health, education and food security.

Malawi ranks among the world’s 10 least developed countries and faces several challenges including food insecurity, the AIDS pandemic and rising poverty.

Our programmes directly benefit around 29,000 children in 95 communities within our impact areas and have positive effects on thousands more children, especially where our activities have been scaled up.
