Over 200,000 people died in the conflict, and many, especially the educated, wealthy elite, fled the country. Some have returned since 2006, when the democratically elected government was sworn in.

Sponsor a child in Malawi - child sponsorship


Malawi is one of Africa's poorest countries. It suffers from inadequate education, health and farming infrastructure. 84,000 people die of AIDS each year, and the life expectancy is very low indeed. Almost 40% of Malawi's population is illiterate, and the school drop-out rate is high. It is a country largely made up of farmers, and yet many people cannot get access to sufficient land. Farming is also hampered by both persistent droughts and flooding. Sponsor a child in Malawi _________________________________________
