Our Current Projects

To meet our strategic objectives

Each year, new projects are implemented with the collaboration of volunteers and partners. These projects help us to meet our goal and even more.


Strengthening Citizen participation for Food Security and Nutrition

This project is funded by Scotish Government through CIFA Trust. The project is an innovative multi-sector initiative to strengthen the ability of poor marginalized rural communities in northern Malawi to achieve lasting food and nutrition security. Drawing on an extensive process of participatory needs assessment, the project identifies and addresses key constraints that hold back small farming households in Mzimba district from meeting their basic rights to food and health as set out in Article 25 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The project is being implemented in Ekwaiweni community and Doroba Community in rural areas of Mzuzu City in Mzimba District, Malawi.


Enhance citizen’s participation in education service

This is an Education Project funded by joint partners Irish Aid and Royal Norwegian Embassy DFID (Department for International Department) through Tiltonse Malawi.
The purpose is to enhance citizen’s participation, voice and action towards realizing more accountable and responsive education service for children, especially, the excluded groups in Inkosana Kamnkhoti Mkandawire. This will be achieved through two interlinked outputs which are:

  1. Improved capacity of communities and local education structures to monitor LDF (Local Development Fund), CDF (Constituency Development Fund) and SIG/SIP (School Improvement Grant/School Improvement Plan).
  2. Increased engagement of stakeholders in pressing for changes that will bring more accountability and transparency in the education sector.


Enabling poor people to promote their rights

Oxfam in partnership with Ungweru, is implementing an OVC (Orphans and Vulnerable Children) project in Mzimba. We are currently working with four Community based Organizations. The focus of our work is on enabling poor people to promote their rights in the following key areas:

  • helping people to earn a sustainable living;
  • ensuring that people with HIV and AIDS have access to essential services; 
  • helping communities to prepare for and respond to humanitarian emergencies.

We strive to ensure that women are treated equally and empowered to succeed in all areas of our work.
