Charity information


Temwa is a UK-based organisation that aims to build a sustainable future for the people of Malawi through community-based projects covering health, agriculture & forestry, schools and skills training.

Founded 2003

  • Mission statement

    The Temwa mission is to create hope for the future among the people of Malawi by:

    • Providing an infrastructure to support Malawian families facing financial and humanitarian hardship, irrespective of religious orientation.

    • Creating partnerships and programs to equip the local population with the skills and resources to ensure ongoing health, education, and financial stability for families and the wider community.

    The first project is based in an area called Nkhata Bay North, on the shores of Lake Malawi. This remote region of around 28,000 people has no electricity, no running water and is severely affected by the AIDS epidemic. NGOs (non governmental organisations) working in the region, as well as the local government, strongly encouraged Temwa in the selection of this area, due to its strong need for basic development.

    Overseen by a programme and project manager in Malawi, Temwa consists of a series of programmes that are aimed at providing sustainable community-driven development in four key areas:

    Health education
    Skills development
    Agriculture and Forestry
    Schools support
