The people of Malawi are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19. Social distancing is just not an option in this culture.
In response, Y-Malawi is working to set up hand washing stations, provide masks and education so that those in the rural villages have a chance to avoid sickness and death. We are working to install hundreds of these simple hand washing stations and providing thousands of masks. We are even working to teach people how to make soap, but we need more resources to save more lives. You can read more about this effort by visiting our blog.
If you can help with a special gift, just click on the photo to the right. For perspective, it costs about $35 to set up a station, and provide masks and soap for a small village.
Questions & Answers
What is the goal? We can do this! It just takes a little from a lot of folks to make a real difference. Our goal is to see 5,000 women and girls sponsored over the next 5 years. This will allow us not only to change the world for these women, but to develop and empower more than 600 local village churches so that they can impact hundreds of thousands.
How much of my gift will go to the work in Africa? We keep our administrative costs low. Like you, we want as much money flowing to the cause as possible. Our goal for administrative expenses is less than 15% of revenues. Our board reviews expenses monthly to insure every penny possible is going to support our mission. Our annual report with details is available each year on our website.
How can I know what my gift is accomplishing in Malawi? Great question! Unless you opt out, we will add you to our monthly email list. Each month we will send you a 1 page email sharing progress, success stories, and updating you on new developments. If you don’t want to receive these updates you can unsubscribe at any time. You can also see regular updates on our blog.
What will my gift be used for? Love this question! If you sponsor a woman or girl, about half of that money goes directly to support your sponsored person. The balance goes to impact lives and create change in the local area she lives in. It supports field officers, transportation, training materials, and Bibles. It support building new schools, providing fresh water wells, tools and materials for vocational training.
What am I committing to? Like your home, it is difficult to plan without a regular income, so recurring gifts are very important to our work. Y-Malawi does not set parameters on your generosity or length of commitment. If you decide to sponsor a woman or girl, we hope that you will consider a 5 year commitment, but you can stop your gift at any time by visiting our donation site and changing your preferences. If you prefer a one-time gift, we welcome whatever you feel called to do.
