Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world with people in rural areas living on less than £2 a day. Hope4Malawi believes that good education has the power to break the cycle of poverty, bringing sustainable change and reduction in poverty.
We work with the Malawi government and local communities to improve school learning environments in rural areas and create opportunities for students to access education that they would otherwise not have.
Our three areas of focus are:
Providing infrastructure including classrooms, toilets and teacher housing,
Resourcing schools including feeding programmes, libraries and e-learning
Providing educational opportunities through secondary and tertiary sponsorship.
Our aim is to educate and empower communities so they can move beyond poverty and achieve a sustainable future, as well as share the love of Jesus so people come to know God as Lord and Saviour and put Him first in their lives.
Hope4Malawi was founded after Sara and Mark Goodman visited Malawi with their family on a short-term mission supported by St Paul’s in 2008, where they were shocked by the level of poverty and the lack of opportunity for children in rural communities.
Many members of the church family are now involved in supporting the charity by visiting Malawi, helping in the UK, giving and praying. The trustees of Hope4Malawi are Sara and Mark Goodman, Pauline and Gerry Rashbrook, Tina and Richard Guilbert and Martin and Wendy Wainwright, all current or past members of the church family.
Further information about what we focus on is on our website hope4malawi.org or please email Sara firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are grateful for the commitment of St Paul’s church family for all your support over the last 13 years.
