Known as the “Warm Heart of Africa”, Malawi is a small peaceful country that boasts a stable democracy and a burgeoning tourism industry, but surprisingly remains one of the poorest countries in the world. The environmental climate is harsh, making agriculture difficult, and many people are afflicted with disease and HIV/AIDS.
With a Gross National Product smaller than the income of most corporations, Malawi has limited resources to invest in education and healthcare and heavily relies on partnerships with foreign aid agencies and non-profit organizations. These partnerships have been crucial in the improvements Malawi has seen in development, and are necessary for the continuation of these positive trends.
Luckily, Malawi has a responsible and pro-active government that makes the most of the assistance it receives. Malawi is doing its best to target the most important aspects of development, but it needs the assistance of the developing world to meet these goals. Will You Join the Cause?
