Malawi Matters Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to develop and facilitate HIV and AIDS education with the people of Malawi, Africa. By connecting agencies and organizations and using hands-on techniques grounded in Malawian culture, we believe that Malawian youth and adults can find solutions to the HIV and AIDS crisis as well as improve and enhance the quality of life in this economically impoverished, but spiritually rich nation.

Malawi Matters invites you to consider giving a "Gift" that keeps giving - education for the women trained in our "Equipping Women - Empowering Girls" course and life skills for the girls these women teach in their homes, schools, congregations, and villages.

P.S. MMI's goal is to conduct 95 classes in 2016 - so there is a need for trainers, small group leaders, record keepers, nsima (main dish of Malawi) servers, materials managers, and much more!!!
The inspiration for Malawi Matters springs from the large concentration of warm, hard-working, and humble Malawians who make South Bend, Indiana U.S.A. (and the surrounding communities) their home. They are our friends and neighbors and have become our family … now their families in Malawi are our families, too. Their stories have changed our lives and compel Malawi Matters to help stem the destructive tide of HIV and AIDS that is decimating that country. By facilitating the necessary education and training needed in Malawi, we hope to bring an end to the present crisis of children raising children.
There are an estimated 650,000 orphans in Malawi due to AIDS.
