Malawi is one of the least developed countries in the world and has been ranked as one of the lowest performing nations for literacy in sub-Saharan Africa. Education is proven to be the driving force to alleviating poverty in Malawi, helping the country move toward development + drastically improving the living conditions. We have personally seen how educational empowerment is such a powerful tool. That is why we've decided to use a portion of every YEWO sale (5% to be exact) to support meaningful educational initiatives in Mancehwe Village.
Want to get involved? Become a sponsor today! We are looking for like-minded individuals/groups/businesses who want to invest in something worth-while. 5% OF EVERY YEWO SALE + 100% OF DONATIONS ARE INVESTED INTO THE FOLLOWING PROGRAMS:

 

 

 

WELL-WISHES NURSERY SCHOOLS & FEEDING PROGRAM
A perfect example of a community-based initiative, the Well Wishes Nursery Schools provide morning early development learning for over 40 little ones in Manchewe and nearby Nkhota Village. Not only does the program give the students a leg up for primary school, all the children are provided with a morning nutritious porridge (full of necessary vitamins and minerals needed to fight malnutrition). It also allows mothers to tend to the gardens without having a child on their back in the morning sun. 5% of every YEWO purchase helps support the Well Wishes Nursery School + 100% of donations go directly to this program.

MANCHEWE PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHER
The average primary (elementary) school class size exceeds 70 pupils per classroom in Malawi! As you can imagine, this creates an incredibly difficult learning environment. Although teachers try their best, it is impossible to cater to every student. As a result, many students drop out of primary school at an early age due to low test results and lack of support. With your help, this year we hope to provide a sufficient number of teachers per students ratio in the Manchewe Primary school to improve the quality of education & provide support for students. 5% of every YEWO purchase helps provide teachers in Manchewe + 100% of donations go directly to this program.

SECONDARY SCHOOL SPONSORSHIP
Many families in northern Malawi rely on subsistence farming (growing enough food to feed their families for the year) and do not earn an income. Secondary (high) school in Malawi is not free. This struggle results in many youths not able to attend secondary school, continuing the cycle of poverty within Malawi. Education is the key to breaking this cycle. We are committed to supporting youth in Manchewe village who would otherwise not have a chance to go to school. Are you with us? For $20 a month YOU could provide a sustainable future for a deserving child in rural Malawi. 5% of every YEWO purchase helps provide scholarships to a deserving student from Manchewe village + 100% of donations go directly to this program.
