In November we are again supporting USPG’s project in Malawi, which has helped improve the living standards of vulnerable households across the four Anglican dioceses of Malawi. The key areas the programme focuses on are: girls’ education, livelihoods, environment and climate change, water, sanitation and hygiene.
To improve literacy amongst girls, it focuses on increasing school enrolment and also works with communities and parents to reduce early marriages, early pregnancies, and the rate at which girls drop out of school. The programme is working to achieve increased household income and food security by equipping farming households with improved farming skills, business skills and access to loans. It has set up farmers’ groups to teach farmers to use new agricultural technologies. It also ensures that households, chur ches and other institutions are knowledgeable about environment management.
You can also give by visiting USPG’s donations page at https://uspg-donation-form.raisely.com/. If you wish to set up a direct debit, do specify that you are part of Christ Church, supporter number RE103, and USPG will be able to collate our donations and give us a yearly total.
