Action for Progress

Action For Progress LogoAction for Progress (AfP) is a not-for-profit, aid assistance organization established under the leadership of Wilson Tembo, in-country director for the Malawi Project. The AfP board is composed of business, medical, religious, and community leaders recognized for their focus on helping the poor, needy, and helpless members of society.

AfP was announced at 3:00 p.m. Malawi time, and simultaneously in the United States (U.S.) at 9:00 a.m. EDT on November 16, 2018 to highlight the longstanding and equal partnership between AfP and their United States based patron organization, the Malawi Project. It reflects that these two groups are companion organizations, both with the same focus and intent to help the poor, and both tightly structured to link together in a seamless program of cooperation.
