About Malawi

SAFE-UK is supporting the rural community of Kachere, a few miles from Zomba, in the southern part of the country. Over 50% of Malawians live on less than £1 per day. Only 36% have access to safe water. 1/8 of children die before they are 5. 91% of children enter primary school but only 26% of those entering complete their primary education. Many girls drop out of school as they cannot afford basic underwear and sanitary protection.
