Raising Malawi's mission is to bring an end to the extreme poverty and hardship endured by Malawi's one million orphans.
Since 2006, Raising Malawi has been dedicated to bringing an end to the extreme poverty and hardship endured by Malawi's one million orphans. Co-founded by Madonna and Michael Berg, Raising Malawi uses a community-based approach to provide immediate direct physical assistance, create long-term sustainability, support education and psycho-social programs; and build global awareness through multi-media and worldwide volunteer efforts.
Raising Malawi works to distribute financial support that will help community-based organizations provide vulnerable children with nutritious food, proper clothing, secure shelter, formal education, targeted medical care and emotional support. We do not create and manage our own programs in Malawi; rather we support people on the ground and in the villages, the ones closest to the realities that exist. We believe in empowering the most dedicated of those people – the ones who understand the challenges and the solutions.
By choosing to work at a community-based level, rather than trying to impose our Western beliefs and methodologies on a different culture, real and lasting change is occurring in the lives of hundreds of thousands of impoverished children.
