BACKGROUND INFORMATION

LifeCare Malawi Foundation (LCMF) is a non-profit organization (NGO) established in 2015 to support the Government of Malawi, and the nation in general, in improving the living conditions of poor and vulnerable citizens. LCMF focuses on creating community based programs in rural communities to bridge existing gaps in education provision, food security, and health services, especially among children, girls, the elderly, and people living with HIV-AIDS. LCMF focuses on building capacity of rural communities to implement sustainable community based education, agricultural, and health projects that promote gender equality and improve household incomes for poor families.

WHO WE ARE

The LifeCare Malawi Foundation is a non-profit organization located in Malawi- South-east Africa, we are much passionate about bridging the existing gap on lack of access to education by vulnerable children, poverty, food insecurity, among other Public Health concerns. These burdens, falls on the shoulders of the very poor people living in rural areas of Malawi. LCMF emphasizes education provision, and Sustainable Public Health community based programs as key strategies for poverty alleviation and empowering vulnerable groups within communities more especially; Children, women, girls and elderly, specifically those living in rural areas and below the poverty line. LCMF focuses on building capacity of the communities by implementing the most sustainable community based health projects, we promote gender equality by helping women such as heading the family and girls know their rights so as to increase and improve their household incomes with their families.

OUR PURPOSE

The most motivating factor that driven the mind of the founder to establish LCMF stems from his previous poor life experience in Malawi. Pax Matipwiri who witnessed and experienced all levels of hardships in life as a vulnerable child in Malawi, wishes to support women, children and their families living in rural areas and undergoing the same tough situations he went through to now taste the privilege of better income, food security, better education and know their rights. That’s why, LCMF desires to make a sustainable and remarkable difference in lives of vulnerable population and groups such as; women, girls, elderly and people living with HIV-AIDS.

OUR GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

LCMF recognizes the existence of unbalanced socio-economic status of people living in rural and hard to reach areas. This existing gap increases the burden of poverty, food insecurity and lack of access to education to many Malawians living in these settings. Despite that Malawi government is trying its best to improve living standards of Malawians, little is being done among the marginalized population and vulnerable groups living in rural areas for their household development. Hence, LCMF embraces the broad goal of bridging the communications gap at all levels of socio-economic status by focusing on reducing poverty, hunger, illiteracy, and improving food security at the household level. LCMF focuses on capacity building of communities and education for vulnerable children more especially girls (60% female’s vs 40% males) and disabled as one of the key strategy for empowering women and young children. LCF helps young girls stay in school, return to school, and access quality secondary and tertiary education.

LCMF is conducting several activities that empowers and improve the mindset of children to focus on their education and career development. We will be achieving these through job shadowing, mentorship, annual trainings and workshops, boosting and capitalizing their talents, among others.
