Why we are here

Despite recent progress in some areas, Malawi remains one of the poorest countries in the world: 6th poorest based on their GDP and 170/188 countries on the Human Development Index. 70% of the population lives below the international extreme poverty line of $2 a day. Malawi’s HIV prevalence is one of the highest in the world, with 9% of adults living with HIV. The most recent data found that Malawi only had one doctor for every 55,000 people (in the UK, it is 1: 350). Only 62% of Malawi’s adult population can read and write. 7% have access to electricity.

How we work

We train and support churches of all denominations across the country so they can help hundreds of communities. Our staff team are based in the head office in Blantyre, with field offices in Lilongwe, Zomba, Chikwawa, Balaka and Mzuzu.

How it all began

Famine hit Malawi in 2002. Living Waters Church set up Eagles to help tackle hunger in the villages and find long-term solutions to the food crisis. Our vision, now a reality, was to equip churches in every district to work with their communities to bring change using local resources and reach those most in need.
