The Malawi Project Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit, humanitarian organization, headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana USA, and chartered in the United States. It’s primary focus is to help the African nation of Malawi, although its members have given assistance and expertise to a number of other nations including: Albania, Ghana, India, Mexico, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Panama, Peru, South Korea, South Sudan, Syria, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The Project focuses in the areas of agriculture, education, medicine, food sustainability, famine relief, community development, and the development of church and community leaders.
Formed in 1999 the Malawi Project functions under the leadership of a six-member board of directors, all who serve in a volunteer capacity. Each member has committed himself or herself to using resources outside the Project for travel, work and office expenses. This allows contributions to be focused on programs and supplies that help the people of Malawi.
The Project crosses all religious, civil, community, ethical, tribal and social lines in its effort to assist the poorest members of society.
Major attention is given to helping the people get on their feet and manage their own future. Care is given not to create dependency through aid packages, and many of its programs have incentives built into them to move the recipients to independent and self-sustainable life styles.
