Mission of Yamba Malawi
Yamba Malawi’s mission is to uplift vulnerable children by empowering their communities to break the cycle of poverty.
This project will empower women, including many young mothers, to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their children through a holistic, child-focused poverty graduation program.
Why We Love This Project
We love Yamba Malawi's unique poverty graduation model with two levels of programming: community-wide programming and household-level support. This systems approach to intervening early to reduce family poverty and strengthen Early Childhood Development and Childhood Protection seeks to reduce low levels of schooling, child marriage, forced labor, and domestic violence for women and girls in later years.
