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.
Report on February-March, 2014 Malawi Trip
As we prepare to return to Malawi in June and July, we will be facilitating continuing education courses for the 6 presbyteries trained in 2013, following up on a visit by Malawian volunteers to each of the 155 congregations trained to date to review progress on their church action plans, providing a 3-day training for MMI's 35 Presbytery Representatives, overseeing translation of our courses into the native language, and finalizing plans for programs in 2015 and 2016.

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.
